Training in musical rhythm and field dependence of children
Journal/Book: Percept Mot Skills. 1975; 40: 392-4.
Abstract: The present experiment investigated the effects of musical rhythm training on field dependence in children. An experimental group of 12 Ss showed significant improvement on the Children' s Embedded-figures Test and the Rod-and-frame Test after training, while a matched control group did not improve. Pretest scores on the children's Embedded-figures Test and the Rod-and-frame Test were not correlated.
