    Roland Pfister
    Department of Psychology, University of Wurzburg, Germany
    Acta Psychol (Amst) 135:316-22. 2010

    Joachim Hoffmann
    University of Wurzburg, Wurzburg, Germany
    Q J Exp Psychol (Hove) 62:2433-49. 2009
    ..Altogether, the data indicate that both movement-effect and target-effect associations contribute to the formation of action-effect linkages-provided that movements and targets are likewise contingently related to the effects...
