Vigilance in the courtroom: The struggle for jurors’ attention

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Trial by jury is a cornerstone of America’s legal system (Scheb & Scheb, 2008), yet that cornerstone is based on an assumption that jurors pay attention to the trial. The present study investigates whether vigilance decrement (Young, Robinson, & Alberts, 2009), the decline in one’s ability to pay attention over time, applies to jurors. Additionally, this study explores whether procedural downtime during a trial, such as during a sidebar, is experienced by jurors as refreshing break or frustrating delay. It is hypothesized that the frequency and quality of the downtime determines whether it helps or hinders juror concentration.
