Background: Visuospatial ability correlates positively with novice performance of simple laparoscopic tasks. The aims of this study were to identify if visuospatial ability could predict technical performance of an ultrasound–guided needle task by novice operators, and to describe how emotional state, intelligence and fear of failure impact on this.
