Abstract : This is the final report of studies of human information processing related to variables present in high speed systems operations. This report reviews earlier reported data pertinent to the effects of informational input rates and related factors. The report then presents experiments concerned with two other aspects of the problem: (1) the interaction of short-and long-term memories in human data handling, and (2) the effects of presented information rates on subjective information, i.e., the amount of information in the operator's estimate of what is presented by the display.
