Concept Formation and Utilization in the Presence of Irrelevant Visual Stimulation. Final Report.
Edmonds, Ed M.
The purpose of the two experiments was to assess the effects of two levels of stimulus redundancy and three levels of irrelevant visual stimulation on performance in a successive discrimination task and a reproduction task. The results indicate that increases in redundancy facilitated performance in the reproduction task but had no appreciable effect on performance in the successive discrimination task. Performance significantly decreased in both tasks as the amount of irrelevant stimulation increased. (KJ)
