Seven experiments were conducted. These included comparisons snns between multiple and sinnngle monitored systems paired and isolated monitors at high and at low signal rates spaced and massed monitoring at high and at low signal rates a comparison between spaced, paired, and a combina tion of spaced and paired monitoring and a comparison of transfer effects in going from high to low and from low to high signal rates in terms of two different displays. The results of these studies and the conclusions growing out of these resultlts are summarized under rr four headings multiple monitoring, spaced monitoring, spaced-paired monitoring, and transfer.
