Using this information, the bisection method determines the midpoint of this interval and uses this midpoint as the stock price to calculate a value for the options.
In both the TOJ and line bisection tasks, stimuli from two sides of the visual field can be considered to be competing for attention and therefore for the strength, priority and clarity of phenomenological representation.
