When a televised display of a person's owni behavior in pursuit tracking is delayed, his performance, as measured by time on target, is seriously degraded. Data for six subjects on two trackitng pattertns under seven delay values reveal a linear inverse relationship between the logarithm of the time on target and the magnitude of delay.
