Abstract : Human performance theory uses an experimental paradigm in which speeded performance, or reaction time, is measured as a function of the time intervening between two successive stimuli. The study examines a special form of a two-signal paradigm in which the first stimulus provides the 'rule' for defining the appropriate response to the second stimulus. This form is called an information-combining task. The aim of the investigation was to examine temporal factors in an information-combining task in order to discriminate among alternative human performance theories. (Author)
