Our writing assignment for the week deals with the interface between attention and consciousness. After learning about the cocktail party phenomenon, please describe a scenario you may have encountered in your life that seems to fit the description of the phenomenon. Also, after reading about the phenomenon known as ‘inattentional blindness’ and watching the video demonstration (the basketball clip), I want to know your reaction to this video. Does it surprise you that ‘missed’ some crucial information watching the video the first time?
Papers should be written in APA format and should be 1-3 pages in length. Please be sure to address both the cocktail party phenomenon and inattentional blindness. Please submit your paper through Blackboard by 11:59 pm on Sunday. Please be sure to include citations and full references for each source utilized.
