16 September 2022 - 18:00

LCB Depot, Leicester

This is a drop-in event, running between 18.00-23.00. 

How do we ignore distractions? Are some things more distracting than others? Uncover the answers to these questions while discovering how researchers study attention spans by playing FrootStroop! 

FrootStroop is a gamified version of the Stroop task, the most widely used laboratory task that tests focus and cognitive psychology. It uses real fruit as a tool to respond to words on a screen and will introduce you to research that studies basic understanding of human attention, and how it is used to form theories that will have applications in the future. 

This drop-in activity is part of our LCB Depot Takeover event
