Release of inattentional blindness by high working memory load: Elucidating the relationship between working memory and selective attention
This test measures perceptual configuration, ability to shift under the influence of changing demands, and "interfering effect," the response inhibition which is defined as the ability to suppress a usual behavioral pattern, the ability to perform an unusual act, and selective attention
Task with Olfactory Distracters
However no such group differences were found on either the Flanker or visual search task, suggesting that the Project: EVO test was more robust in characterizing selective attention
abilities than traditional tests.
One of the experimental paradigms most commonly used to evaluate selective attention
is the conjunctive visual search paradigm derived from Feature Integration Theory (Treisman & Gelade, 1980).
When for example, in God of War (SCE Studios Santa Monica, 2005), Kratos enters a room and finds himself face to face with a boss, the player is faced with a situation where his selective attention
comes into play through his sensorimotor filters: to achieve the most powerful blows, seeking his objective--to defeat the boss efficiently--the player must constantly evaluate his energy level, the energy level of his opponents, the amount of special powers he has available, his location in the virtual game space, etc.
However, there is little information available in literature about the impact of stimuli on the studies of the spatial selective attention
or its applications.
Event-related brain potentials in the study of visual selective attention
com/store/), assessing both sustained and selective attention
, and utilizing geometric drawings as stimuli, reducing the impact of letter and number learning on attention assessment in children (McGee, Clark, & Symons, 2000).
It is well-known that goal-directed attention, one of the two determinant factors of selective attention
(Chun, Golomb, & Turk-Browne, 2011; Ruz & Lupianez, 2002; Yantis, 2000), is affected by a subject's expectancies and requires conscious awareness (Ruz & Lupianez, 2002).
This opinion is in agreement with activated and resources models of selective attention
, according to which definite, limited resources are required for analysis and selection of signals.
However, when the impact of the incongruent stimulus was evaluated to verify the impact on visual selective attention
, the level of interference was the same as the control group, with no statistically significant difference for visual selective attention
on the Stroop effect.
