Abstract:

Sequences of digits were painted upon a display scope under conditions of a stationary window window fixed, moving sequence and of a moving window sequence fixed, moving window. Performance was examined under a variety of window-sizes and rates of presentation. Unlike the reading of English text with long-term sequential constraints, the present task could be specified by only two successive digits. Nevertheless, the accuracy of target detection improved with window size in a manner not unlike that reported for English text. The results are discussed.
