Abstract This study explored the effects of interference on visual stimuli and whether reaction time of the participant to recognize the stimuli would be affected. The participants were mainly college students who did the experiment for a class requirement. The Independent Variable (IV) was the level of interference, defined in this experiment by the incongruous pairing of color and word choice. The Dependent Variable (DV) is defined as the reaction time of the participants to read

    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.
