You will control a purple shape with the left and right arrow keys. This avatar only moves in one direction at
a time and points in the direction it can go. If it's pointing left, you can move left with the left arrow key only.
If it's pointing right, you can move with the right arrow key only.
You will start on the sidewalk next to a basket of seeds. Touch the basket to pick up a seed and carry it across the
road to the farm on the other side to plant it.
You are safe on the sidewalks, but if you get hit by a car while trying to cross the road, you'll be sent back to the sidewalk you started
crossing from and will have to start your crossing over again.
The faster you carry a seed across the road, the more points you get. You'll have 5 flowers to plant in total. Try to score as highly as you can. Good luck!

In this study, we asked you to play a game that would direct your attention to certain objects in certain areas of the screen. While you were playing this game, an unexpected green diamond appeared in the display and moved through it for about a second. Depending on the experimental condition to which you were assigned, it could either start far away and move closer to you, or start near you and move farther away.
We are interested in when you're likely to notice an unexpected object and when you're likely to miss it, and how this interacts with where you direct your attention in the display.
