The study I am currently conducting looks at the effects of physical fatigue on spatial attention. Past research has shown that mental fatigue results in a rightward shift in spatial attention. Based on this research, we have hypothesised that physically induced fatigue will produce the same rightward shift in spatial attention, and therefore one will neglect the left field of attention. The study is also testing whether physical fatigue, due to exercise, will cause a narrowing of attention, or a “tunnel vision” in participants
