Experiment investigated whether a similar association between ‘attention to detail’ as a personality trait might be found in the general population, resulting in longer reaction times (RT) when viewing scenes than those who score lower in this personality

 This assignment requires you to prepare a laboratory report for the experiment undertaken in the first week of tutorial classes. Recall that the experiment involved extracting the gist of visual scenes, which is a task that involves a global processing strategy to take a holistic view of the scene. However, one of the characteristics of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a heightened attention to detail and that literature suggests individuals with ASD tend to process visual information using a more local processing strategy. Attention to detail is a trait that varies considerably in the general population, with implications for global/local processing more broadly. Our experiment investigated whether a similar association between ‘attention to detail’ as a personality trait might be found in the general population, resulting in longer reaction times (RT) when viewing scenes than those who score lower in this personality trait. This should be written up in a traditional lab report format (i.e. Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, References), using APA 6th Edition formatting, with a Griffith University Cover Sheet and title page.
