This chapter examines implicit and explicit techniques involved in motor learning through two model tasks—the serial reaction time task (SRT) and visuomotor adaptation—a unique feature of which is the goal-selection and movement-execution stages. The goal-selection stage plays a key role in the success of the SRT model task in place of simple motor execution. Movement execution plays a critical role in the success of visuomotor adaptation while goal selection gets less attention in this model task. Researchers have also investigated and tested awareness in experiments using the two model tasks. These experiments provide significant information about the functional role of explicit and implicit processes involved in acquiring and enhancing goal-directed movement behavior.
