Noise and Attentional Selectivity: A Reproducible Phenomenon?
Forster, Peter M.; Grierson, Arthur T.
British Journal of Psychology, v69 n4 p489-98 Nov 1978
Four pursuit-tracking experiments were conducted in an attempt to replicate with adults, Hockey's findings that loud noise increases attentional selectivity. Neither attentional selectivity nor masking of auditory feedback was found to be significant. For Hockey's reply and the authors' rejoinder, see p499-506 of this issue. (SJL)
