    Detailed Description+

    Assesses attention over extended periods of time.
    The term “vigilance" is used in psychology mainly to refer to the sustaining of attention in monotonous stimulus situations. Individuals performing certain monotonous activities do not always receive the arousal impulses that they need; this leads to mental fatigue and hence to a decline in performance efficiency. It is this situation which has given rise to the concept of being “overchallenged by understimulation”.
    The ability to maintain attention or sustained alertness in stimulus-poor situations is often important in safety-related jobs; it is therefore tested in safety assessments and traffic psychological investigations. The test is also used in sports psychology and in clinical neuropsychology, because various neurological and mental disorders can affect attention.

The subsidiary variable Number of false alarms can be used as a control variable that indicates whether the respondent has understood the instructions and taken the task seriously.
