Sternberg introduced the additive factor method as a tool for discovering and studying in choice reaction time situations in human subjects. Underlying the method is the notion that if information processing consists of successive stages, then different factors affecting different stages must have additive effects on reaction-time measurements. The additive factor method has been extensively used in humans but few attempts have been made to examine whether or not additive reaction time patterns… CONTINUE READING
