Divided Attention - TAP-M

Real-life situations often demand that our attention be simultaneously divided between different on-going events

Deficits of divided attention are frequently diagnosed in neuropsychological practice. Divided attention can be assessed in a "dual-task" paradigm, in which two stimuli have to be attended to simultaneously. In this test, a visual and an auditory task must be processed in parallel.
