The DVT is a simple task designed to measure vigilance during rapid visual tracking and accurate selection of target stimuli. It focuses on alertness and vigilance while placing minimal demands on two other components of attention: selectivity and capacity.
Note: Normative data are not provided in the Professional User’s guide, but are presented in the Revised Comprehensive Norms for an Expanded Halstead-Reitan Battery. Stopwatch required.
A comprehensive list of research articles related to the DVT is available via Mendeley, a free reference management tool. After accessing the link, you will be prompted to create an account. A white paper describing how to use this research repository can be found here. Use of this resource is encouraged to facilitate research using the DVT. Both the list and the white paper are available in the Resources tab above.
