Effects of intermittent noise on visual search tasks of varying complexity.
Percept Mot Skills 1971; 32:219-226
Investigation of the effects of various ratios of intermitent noise on a visual task (search of a display for a single letter located among a larger background of letters). The results support the hypothesis that the particular effect attributable to varying ambient noise ratios on target-detection time is dependent upon the degree of difficulty of the inspection task.
