The Effects of Extraneous Speech on Visual Vigilance Performance of Children
Brackup, Ellen S.; Knopf, Irwin J.
Child Development, 49, 2, 505-8, Jun 78
Investigates whether noninstructional speech distracts normal school children from a vigilance task and examines the role played by meaningfulness and schedule of presentation in producing speech's effects. A total of 60 first grade males performed a 30-minute visual vigilance task under five conditions of auditory background stimulation. (Author/JMB)
