[Learning of reproduction of random sequences by the right and the left hand movements: coding of positions or movements].

[Article in Russian]


Positional and movement errors during reproduction of memorized sequences of six random hand movements were analyzed. The task was performed by two groups of subjects: during six days by one hand (right/left) and during next six days by another hand (left/right). Mean values of accuracy errors decreases during learning only in a group which begins to work by the right hand. The quantity of transposition errors depends on type of error: positional or movement one. Subjects transpose the positions of the right hand more often when it begins to perform the task. Subjects transpose the movements of the left hand more often when it begins to perform the task. The results are evident in favor of the hypothesis about two type of movement coding: positional and vector coding (coding of positions or of changing of positions) specific in the right and the left hemispheres and suggest that learning of reproduction of movement sequences is provided by vector coding.
