Flexibility - TAP-M

Paying attention to specific aspects in our surrounding world is not a static process. On the contrary, it is essentially an active process by which we turn our attention away from objects in order to effectively deal with other objects. In daily life and in the execution of work, it is necessary to gear our attention again and again to newly relevant aspects of a situation.

In the present test, competing stimuli are presented simultaneously left and right of the fixation point. The subject is instructed to press the response key on the side containing the target stimulus. Target stimuli are either letters or digits. After starting the test, the experimenter should choose between the simple task (with constant target stimuli) or the complex task (with alternating target stimuli).
