Subjects carried out two kinds of tasks. One task was visual (describing a diagram), and the other was classed as verbal (reading and describing a sentence sentences). They reported the results either by pointing (a "visual" response), or speaking (a verbal response). Time to complete each task was recorded in seconds.
This data set was taken from the
R package. From the description in that package, the original data appear
to have been collected in a Mount Holyoke College psychology class based
replication of an experiment by Brooks, L., R. (1968) "Spatial and verbal
components of the act of recall," Canadian J. Psych. V 22, pp. 349 - 368.
