Autumn Constance Final Project #3 Instructions to participants: The program we will be using today is called PsychMate. The program will present detailed instructions before the experiment starts. You will be performing timed exercises. The first round will be a practice trial. After passing the criterion for the practice round the experiment will start. Debriefing : This study measures your reaction time to the task. The purpose of this experiment is to analyze data involving selective attention. I am interested in knowing how close a distraction must be to a target to cause increased reaction time in responding to the target. Procedure: The participant will be given the consent form and may choose to sign. The consent form will have instruction and explain the study.
