Sustained Attention - TAP-M

Concentration on a task is standard in working conditions. It is the maintenance of selective attention for a longer period of time under a certain pressure

The subject is presented stimuli on the screen that differ in several feature dimensions: colour, form, size, and filling. If a given stimulus is identical in one or two of the previously defined stimulus dimensions to the previous stimulus, the reaction key is to be pressed. The task can be adapted to the subject's performance level by choosing one of two levels of difficulty (level 1: "form", level 2: "colour or form").
