Using the experience from the CogLab demonstration and
information from the article, write a paper that addresses the following:
Explain how the attentional blink relates to
attention. Analyze how the variation in time influences the probability of
seeing the second target letter. Explain the circumstances under which the
attentional blink can be eliminated.
In the CogLab demonstration, letters were used as
targets. The target used can influence the duration of one’s attentional
blink and whether the attentional blink even occurs. Complete the
Propose at least two other
targets that could be used to induce the attentional blink.
Predict the effect each of
your suggested targets would have on the duration of one’s attentional
blink as compared to the CogLab activity you completed.
Explain the reasoning behind
Present and discuss at least three occupations in
which workers’ performance could be adversely affected by attentional
blink. Identify and explain the types of problems or mistakes that might
occur in such occupations due to the attentional blink.
Several years ago, some vehicle models came with
a heads-up display (HUD). Instead of looking down at a panel on the
dashboard, speed, distance traveled, fuel level, and time appeared to be
displayed over the hood of the car. Discuss this design in terms of
divided attention and attentional blink. Do you think the design was a
