Auditory attention under binary choise of response based on feature integration in dependence on temperament

822

Abstract

The present study was aimed to reveal interconnections between temperamental traits and auditory attention in the task requiring integration of stimuli and response features. It was found that task performance was related to Extraversion (EPI 1), Neuroticism (EPI 2), Emotional reactivity (FCB-TI 4), Activity (FCB-TI 6), Social ergonicity (STQ 2), Tempo (STQ 5) and Emotionality (STQ 7), which are manifested in constant energetic characteristics of behavior and emotional patterns. The results were interpreted within the framework of the resource approach. Temperament was regarded as an indicator of basic level of arousal, which determines the amount of resources available for feature integration.
