performed by psychologists, one of the established laws is the Fittslaw ( Fitts, 1954 ), which links movement time (MT) to an index of task difficulty (ID) computed as the ratio of movement distance to target size: MT =  a  +  b ·log(ID), where a and b are constants. Fittslaw has been confirmed

) experimental designs. In each task, there were two possible targets of different sizes and distances, with the same index of difficulty according to FittsLaw ( 1954 ). In the first task, participants moved along a track on a piece of Plexiglas® from the start position to one of the two targets, making it a

, one more motor control determinant becomes an important “player”: variability of motor performance. According to Harris and Wolpert ( 1998 ), minimum-variance theory accurately predicts the trajectories of movements and the speed–accuracy trade-off described by Fittslaw. Moreover, Bertucco, Bhanpuri

, three task types were defined with the target-centered ranges [ A , W ], that is, [1, 0.1], [2, 0.2], and [3, 0.3]. The index of difficulty of tasks was defined as index of difficulty = √ A / W in Meyer formula deriving from Fittslaw ( Peng et al., 2019 ). As a result, the task difficulty level of
