An investigation into the modulation of attention through prism adaptation
Connolly, John J. M.
THESIS 7570 In this experiment, a group of volunteers were examined on a perceptual line bisection task (landmark task) before and after adapting to rightward and leftward deviating prisms. The adaptation procedure lasted five minutes and was conducted on separate days for each condition. Differences between pre- and post-adapt conditions were not significant for either the right- or left-adapt condition. This finding is inconsistent with other non-clinical studies, where responses were shifted rightwards following leftward adaptation.
