The present study was designed to investigate the generality of the work-rest ratio rule by using ratios not previously employed with the pursuit rotor task. In addition, a 'blocking' measure and a conventional measure of cognitive performance were used to examine the applicability of the rule to a cognitive task. The results offer partial support for the ratio rule on both tasks studied but also indicate that the ratio rule may be limited to a narrow range of ratios.
