Learning Disability: An Inability to Sustain Attention.
Pihl, R. O.; Niaura, Ray
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v38 n3 p632-34 Jul 1982
Administered a complex reaction time task to 47 learning-disabled and 41 control children. The preparatory interval between a warning and act light was manipulated for length and regularity. Results indicated that the inability to sustain attention over time, rather than momentary inattentiveness, distinguished the two groups. (Author)
