Table 4 Spearman’s correlation coefficients between TUT and performance on the four attention tasks

From: Impact of active and latent concerns about COVID-19 on attention

  Visual search Visual working memory Scene CPT Task switching
TUT after task  − 0.19*  − 0.12  − 0.18  − 0.28*
COVID-specific TUT  − 0.10  − 0.19*  − 0.17  − 0.21*
  1. Bold indicates uncorrected p < 0.01
  2. The negative correlation with visual search slope contradicts predictions of interference from heightened concerns in that task, as greater TUT during visual search was associated with shallower search slope (i.e., more efficient search)
  3. *indicates values significant at the corrected alpha level of p < 0.0033
