Psychophysics with children: Investigating the effects of attentional lapses on threshold estimates

Abstract:

When assessing the perceptual abilities of children, researchers tend to use psychophysical techniques designed for use with adults. However, children’s poorer attentiveness might bias the threshold estimates obtained by these methods. Here, we obtained speed discrimination threshold estimates in 6- to 7-year-old children in UK Key Stage 1 (KS1), 7- to 9-year-old children in Key Stage 2 (KS2) and adults using three psychophysical procedures: QUEST, a 1-up 2-down Levitt staircase, and Method o...
