Contrarily, one cannot be vigilant, if he is not aware (selective attention) about the multiple external stimuli which surround him. If it happens to be so, a question arises: is there any vigilance decrement over a prolonged period of time, if sustained attention task is cued? Does the vigilance decrement function differ for the un-cued and cued tasks? Does the facilitation or inhibition of sustained attention improve selective attention? These issues have been addressed by combining the covert orienting and vigilance paradigms in the two studies that are described below.
