Abstract

This investigation employed a transfer of training paradigm and a simple simulation of an endoscopic task to explore the nature of the relationships across different components of the simulation task. The simulation disrupted the participant's normal hand-eye coordination and created a loss of binocular stereopsis information about the relative depth of the objects in the task space. The goal of the investigation was to attempt to understand the hand-eye coordination system by manipulating the constraints under which it operated. The hand-eye coupling that was established during the training phase of the experiment seemed to be an important factor for supporting the transfer of skilled performance. The static form of the visual stimulus that was provided for performance feedback and the particular hand movements that were required to accomplish the simulation task were not as important for supporting the transfer of performance in this task.
