Visual and Auditory Information Processing in Flying Skill Acquisition. Final Report for Period July 1973 through June 1974.
Leshowitz, Barry; And Others
A series of experiments are described which were conducted to further refine experimental paradigms for the investigation of information processing skills relevant to pilot training. A series of tasks have been developed and studied which attempt to measure the individual's information processing capacity as well as his susceptibility to performance degradation resulting from the introduction of interfering stimuli. Data suggest performance on these tasks to be highly dependent on individual differences, therefore, making them good candidates for use as tools in the investigation of information processing skills in flying training. Implications for direct application to flying training research are discussed. (Author/DGC)
