1. Which of these findings poses a problem for the filter model?

  • Moray (1959), pps could identify the language used in the unattended channel so there was an element of semantic analysis
  • Moray (1959), pps recognised their own name in the unattended channel so there was an element of semantic analysis
  • Moray (1959), pps did not recognise their own name in the unattended channel so there was an element of semantic analysis

2. What is the core concept of Lavies perceptual load model?

  • If the load on perceptual analysis is slight, then there is no filtering and non/targets are processed, When the load is heavy, there will be full capacity on filtering (gating)

3. What defines the stimulus and response set?

  • STIMULUS = basis of the physical properties of the input, RESPONSE = basis of mental categories that do not share physical property
  • STIMULUS = basis of mental categories that do not share physical property RESPONSE = basis of the physical properties of the input

  • Nervous system, Semantic feature selection, Temporary store, Rehearsal, Delayed channel switching
  • Nervous system, Semantic feature selection, Temporary store, Rehearsal, Fast channel switching
  • Nervous system, Physical feature selection, Temporary store, Rehearsal, Fast channel switching

5. What is the main premise of 'attention'?

  • The brain has bioenergetic limitations preventing undivided attention
  • Brain has infinite capacity; attention used as a resource allocation tool
  • The brain has limited capacity; attention used to prevent system overload
  • Brain has finite capacity; attention used as a resource allocation tool
