Ignore That

Ana Munoz
Citizen Science Project
For my citizen science project I participated in an “Ignore That!”experiment. The way I contributed to this project was the fact that I was part of a study on how easily distracted we become depending on age, language, or backgroundIt examines the ability to ignore unnecessary information. The experiment was interested on how this effect changes over age, and whether the effect is weaker for fluent speakers of English or who learned English later in life. I chose this project because the whole point of the experiments are to basically learn more about the human behavior and understand the complex system of our bodies in anyway seeing fit. After completing my part, I feel as if I have contributed to that ongoing research specifically; no matter how small of a part is was.
