Abstract:Creating learning curves based on virtual reality simulators seems to be a promising new method to tackle the challenges minimally invasive surgery has raised. Nevertheless, is it currently unclear how future training and assessment with virtual reality simulators can be designed. A question of interest is if the latent abilities necessary in the real procedure occur in simulator training as well. One aspect could be that simulator training elicits more repetitive behaviour. Therefore, MSL might play a role in simulator training. MSL is a form of open-loop learning in which sequences of actions are implicitly learned and automatized over time. The impact of MSL on simulator tasks might be assessed based on a two-part learning curve following the LARARY model. The current research will focus on finding out the general proportion MSL in laparoscopic simulator task performance and if there is a variance in the proportion MSL between individuals. Additionally, it will be assessed if the chosen tasks may serve as psychometric tools.
