The ANT in a Russian sample: Testing the independence of attention networks

The Russian Journal of Cognitive Science. 2015. Vol. 2. No. 2-3. P. 66-69.

The Attention Network Test (ANT) is a measure that allows assessment of the three different attention networks postulated by Posner and Peterson (1990): alerting, orienting, and executive control. The ANT became a popular tool for assessing the functioning of attention networks due to its simplicity, relative brevity, and accessibility for researchers. The data obtained with the ANT in a Russian sample are reported in this study. The analysis was focused on the question of independence of the attention networks. It has been shown that the orienting and executive control networks are not independent from one another since these networks scores yielded a significant correlation. Furthermore, an interaction was found between cue types and flanker types.
