This study investigated the recall of movement patterns presented either by demonstration or guided movement with vision eliminated. Participants were instructed to rehearse and remember each of the 12 patterns using one of four strategies: imagery, verbal labeling; imagery and verbal labeling, or no rehearsal strategy (i.e., control condition). Recall was better for patterns that were demonstrated than for those presented via guided movement. In addition, more patterns were remembered if a combination of imagery and verbal labeling were employed as a rehearsal strategy compared to using imagery alone. These results are discussed using Annett's (1994) model showing the relationships between action, language, and imagination in the acquisition of motor skills.
