Abstract

In the present study, we investigated whether there were gender differences in visuo-motor sequence learning requiring trial-and-error process. In the task, participants learned correct button press orders of a given sequence by trial-and-error and successfully repeated the sequence for 20 trials. The results demonstrated that men showed more accurate and faster performance than women. The total number of errors until the 1st successful trial was fewer in men than in women while afterward, that was not different. The speed was faster in men than in women in the all performance phases. This result indicates that men could acquire spatial representations of button presses faster and do faster motor performance than women.
