Illustration of performance associated with different strategies in reaction to continuous time on task (partly based on the classifications by Davis, 1946). Cumulative Intellectual Demands Task characteristics that fall under this category are those that are related to the degree of attentional demands on the individual and the extent of these demands over time. TIME ON TASK. The most prominent variable associated with studies of cognitive fatigue is the sheer amount of time on task. , 1946). Thorndike (1912) estimated that in cognitive tasks of durations up to 2 hr, the maximum degree of impairment was about 10% in performance level.

Gates, 1916). , extraversion [impulsivity] and neuroticism [anxiety]). Recency of Last Meal Data concerning food intake and cognitive fatigue provide indirect evidence on the effects of a recent meal and cognitive fatigue, mainly because food intake takes place during a break in an otherwise continuous time-on-task experiment. , Robinson, 1911) suggests that immediately subsequent to a meal (especially a midday lunch), there is an attendant decrement in task performance associated with a lowering of general level of arousal.
