Abstract:

The use of a unique computer-controlled PDP-5 CRT display system with light pen facility in the study of a wide range of signal detection and pattern recognition problems is described. The displays used to study the capabilities of the human operator to detect signals embedded in noise are described and illustrated. In addition to illustrating displays to study the effects of various signal and display parameters, pre-processing and real-time, operator-directed via light pen processing are also shown. The use of this system for tachistoscopic stimulus presentations to study basic human information processing capabilities is also described. Author
