Allocation of Attention and Task Difficulty.
Merrill, Edward C.; Peacock, Michael
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n5 p588-93 Mar 1993
Forty-eight individuals sorted picture cards according to basic (easy) or superordinate (difficult) categories, while being measured on response time to auditory probes (as an index of attention to the primary task). Subjects without mental retardation allocated more attention to difficult tasks. Those with mental retardation gave similar attention to easy and difficult tasks. (Author/JDD)
