Effects of Target Probability and Memory Demands on the Vigilance of Adults with and without Mental Retardation.
Tomporowski, Phillip D.; Tinsley, Veronica
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n6 p688-703 May 1994
The vigilance of young adults with and without mild mental retardation (MR) was compared, with subjects performing two memory demanding, cognitively based tests. The vigilance decrement of MR adults declined more rapidly than did the vigilance of non-MR adults, due to an interaction between target detectability and response bias, and poor target detection.
