Gender Difference of Developments of Motor Control Function in Primary School Ages with Visual Synchronization Task of Hands’ Movements

Kyota Aoki, Norio Fukuda, and Hisanori Hotta
Abstract—There is a difference of development between genders. About motor control function, girls show about two years’ progress than boys in primary school ages. However, there is few quantative observation. We need clear views about the gender difference to find pupils that have problems in their developments. The authors proposed the cooperative visual synchronization task, its’ measuring method, implementation and experiments to measure and evaluate the performance of motor control function. The new task and the measuring method enable to measure the precise movements safely, easily and in a short period of time. The proposed method is safe, because there is no need to attach the device to a subject nor to make exaggerated motions. With the method, we made the measurements of 400 subjects in primary school ages. From the measurements, this paper shows a clear view of the developments of motor control function. Boys show about 21 months’ delay in average of motor control function than girls. Girls‘ development about motor control function slowdown at about 130 months from birth.

Index Terms—Development, developmental process, motor control function, measurement, evaluation.
