Título A study on the effects of VDT work on information processing ability
Título original VDT-sagyō no jōhō shori nōryoku e no eikyō ni kansuru kenkyū [en japonés]
Información bibliográfica Oct. 1988, Vol.24, No.5, p.313-318. Illus. 14 ref.
Resumen Fourteen male college students aged 22-23 were tested for visual performance and information processing ability after working with VDTs for 5, 10, 15, or 30 minutes. Before and after each working period, each subject was given a visual flicker fusion test and asked to write down a sequence of random numbers. From the quality of the random number sequence reproduced, the information processing ability was calculated according to a mathematical model. With respect to initial values, information processing ability increased up to 15 minutes of work but was diminished after working for 30 minutes. The vision flicker fusion test gave identical results. Thus, VDT work influences not only visual ability but also the information processing ability of the brain.
