Playing Mathematical Instruments: Emerging Perceptuomotor Integration With an Interactive Mathematics Exhibit

Ricardo Nemirovsky, Molly L. Kelton, and Bohdan Rhodehamel 

March 2013, Volume 44, Issue 2, Page 372

Abstract:
Research in experimental and developmental psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience suggests that tool fluency depends on the merging of perceptual and motor aspects of its use, an achievement the authors call perceptuomotor integration. Just as expertise in playing a piano relies on the interanimation of finger movements and perceived sounds, the authors argue that mathematical expertise involves the systematic interpenetration of perceptual and motor aspects of playing mathematical instruments.
