March 25 th , 2008 PSYC213 Attention Ex. Finding Waldo Attentional problem: requires us to attend to one thing and ignore distracting and similar items. (Searching for something with two or more properties: red AND striped (Waldo). Easiest when something is distinctive.) David Navan -Global Precedence: large scale forms more rapidly recognized than smaller ones. >Ball Passing Demo: counting number of passes within white team ( attentional filter ) vs. black team (another attentional filter which ignores everything in white but pays attention to everything in black, including the gorilla). Example of a Top-Down Process: function of expectations and volition, will, etc. >Other Demo of inattention: Harvard courtyard, woman stopped at random, giving directions: door passes in between and person changes places with other person. Wasn’t paying close attention to person who they were giving directions to (Only pay attention to details that are IMPORTANT for the task at hand she doesn’t have to know that much about it in order to be giving directions).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
