    Hi guys

    I am a new user and my name is George.I would be forever in your debt if you could help me with one question:

    Does video taping someone in stressful situation negatively affect performance?
    For example if someone was asked to do an oral exam/interview and one person would be filmed and the other one not would there be a difference in performance.
    I would be soooo grateful if any of you know any trials or literature that comments on this question.In fact any literature on the psychological effects of videotaping would be helpful.I have searched for hours and can't find anything.

    Please help me I am desperate.

    George

    Well George, I assume you have checked out psychINFO, and by extension proquest, right? I'm not familiar with the effects of vidiotaping on performance, but you might be able to extrapolate fro what we know about performance in front of an crowd. Behaviors that are well learned will improve with the added stress, and those that are less well practiced will suffer fromthe added stress. I can't remember off hand the name of that effect; but somebody here will.

    This is all I found:

    TI: Motivational effect of simulated videotaping on performance.
    PY: 1976
    LA: English
    AU: Elliott,-Gary; Bartee,-Horace-H
    SO: Perceptual-and-Motor-Skills. Vol 42(3, Pt 2) Jun 1976, 1193-1194.
    PB: US: Perceptual and Motor Skills
    IS: 0031-5125
    PT: Journal; Peer-Reviewed-Journal
    AB: 165 college students did not earn differentially different bowling scores as a function of whether their performance was videotaped or not, but males scored much higher than females regardless of the videotape variable. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

    Are you thinking of the Yerkes-Dodson law?
