    Abstract

    Monitoring accuracy during choice RT allows subjects to maintain fast, safe RT bands and avoid overly fast, unsafe RT bands. 5 retarded adults received trial-by-trial feedback on accuracy over a number of sessions to train monitoring of accuracy and to improve RT performance. Training was introduced according to a multiple-baseline-across-subjects (with reversal) design. Training had no significant effect on subsequent RT performance, suggesting that inefficient monitoring of accuracy may be a structural characteristic of mental retardation.
