In this article, the researches are reviewed that used purusit and compensatory tracking tasks without controlled element in which the command variable was either step or sinusoidal wave. Following an introductory chapter, Chapter 2 and 3 discuss the responses to step and sinusoidal wave respectively. The title of each section of Chapter 2 is as follows: 2.1 Linearity in human input-output system. 2.2 Adequate form of transfer function of human input-output system. 2.3 Determinating of human transfer function by means of t heoretical curve fitting. 2.4 Estimated curve of sinusoidal response computed from step response. The title of each section of Chapter 3 is as follows: 3.1 Specific character of sinusoidal response. 3.2 Transfer function of human inputoutput system. 3.3 Time variance course and non-linearity in dynamic characteristics of human input-output system. 3.4 Estimated curve of step response computed from sinusoidal response. References consist of 19 foreign and 15 Japanese papers.
