    The kinaesthetic spatial aftereffect was used to investigate the muscular component in positional judgments. In the first experiment the magnitude of the aftereffect following 30° rotation of the limb through its longitudinal axis for 90 sec. was measured using 20 Ss. In a second experiment using 40 Ss the spatial and temporal aspects of stimulation were replicated while muscular exertion was varied. A comparison of the results of the two experiments showed that a muscular component, dependent upon the direction of prior stimulation, was present in positional judgments. 1972 Australian Psychological Society
