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.
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.
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.
