This databank contains a number of raw data that were exploited in our recent papers, especially using time series analyses.
These files contain series of 1024 successive self-assessments, collected twice a day. Data collection was done with the Physical –Self Inventory-6 (Ninot, Fortes & Delignières, 2001). Four participants were involved in this study. EGS: Global Self-Esteem; VPP: Physical Self-Worth, CS: Sport Competence, CP: Perceived Fitness, APP: Attractive Body, F: Perceived Strength).
This data set was exploited in the following papers:

- Oscillation -Tapping
This file contains series of periods (ms, 512 data points) collected from two independent groups in a continuation tapping task and a continuation oscillation task (initial frequency: 1.25 Hz).

- Unimanual tapping – Continuation and synchronization
These files colleted contain series of periods and asynchronies (ms, 1024 data points), collected in continuation and in synchronization conditions in a tapping task, following two frequencies (1.8 Hz and 1.25 Hz).

- Unimanual and bimanual timing
This data set contains series from 12 participants. Data were collected in tapping and forearm oscillation tasks, in continuation and in synchronization, in unimanual and in bimanual conditions. Bimanual tasks were performed at F1 = 2 Hz, and at F2 = 1.5 Hz. Unimanual tasks were only performed at 2 Hz. Three kinds of variables were derived: Periods (ms) in all conditions, Asynchronies (ms) in synchronization conditions, and Relative Phase (degrees) in bimanual conditions. In bimanual conditions variables were computed separately for the right and the left hand. All files contain series of 512 data points.
This data set was (partially) exploited in the following papers:
