The Rough Guide to Psychology - Dr Christian Jarrett

If you ask a person to look out for a letter, say "X", embedded in a stream of successively presented numbers, you'll find their ability to detect any other stimuli immediately after that "X" will be severely compromised.

  8. I think this is my first time participating in Friday 56. My quote is incorporated into my book review. It isn't exactly line 5 on page 56 because that line needed too much explaining to understand it. So I chose one a little lower down the page.

    I have several Rough Guides in my library and they are good resources for specialized information.

By the way, Emily isn’t your real name. You died in an accident. You paid extra for that."
