The Petrie Block Test was used to measure kinesthetic aftereffect in a sample of 60 normal adult female subjects. In addition to the establishment of normative data for this sample, several procedural questions raised by other investigators were addressed. It was determined that the use of ascending trials produced more accurate baseline measures than the alternate use of ascending and descending trials. Also, order of test presentation affected baseline measures. Since a rather large proportion of this sample was comprised of stimulus-governed individuals, some factors related to their particular perceptual style were examined.
