57. Which of the following is the best example of specificcognitivemental imagery? 58. When mentalpracticetrials and physicalpracticetrials are included in practicesessions, skill learning can be as good when the same number of trials only involve physical practice. 59.Onlythe brain activity hypothesisis generally accepted as an explanation of effectiveness of mentalpractice for motor skill learning and performance 60.Researchon augmented feedback bandwidthshas shown greatest learning advantages 61. The elaboration hypothesisstates that contextualinterferenceimproves learning because as learners create new skill variations during randompracticethey create a more distinct memory representation of the skill 62. In labyou determined if and how much bilateral transfer occurred from the pre-test to the post-test by calculating the 63.Bilateraltransferoccurred in lab if practice of a mirror tracing task with thepreferred arm resulted in performance improvement of the non-preferred arm, which did NOTpractice the task 64. All but one of the following are possible explanations as to why distributedpracticemay lead to better learning. Which is not one? 65. Research has demonstrated that mental imageryability is an individual-difference variable that influences the successof mental practice 66. If the group in lab that practiced 4,6, and 8 feet away from the target scored better on the final 7thtest than the group that practiced solely at 6 feet, we would have evidence of what aspect of learning? 67. Which of the following has research shown is notwhat the observer of a skilleddemonstrationperceives and uses which results in facilitating the learning of the observed skill? The observer perceives and uses the
