A Divided Attention Experiment with Pervasively Hyperactive Children.
van der Meere, Jaap; Sergeant, Joseph
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v15 n3 p379-92 Sep 1987
Task performance of 12 pervasive hyperactives and controls (ages 8-13) was studied in a divided attention reaction time experiment. Hyperactives were slower than controls, had more variable reaction times, and made more frequent errors. Task inefficiency in hyperactives could not be explained by a divided attention deficiency or impulsive responding. (Author/JW)
