A statistically significant interaction between visual noise level and accuracy level was obtained for reaction time data in the Sternberg choice reaction task. This suggests that the speed/accuracy tradeoff is localized in the initial stimulus encoding stage of processing, specifically in a stimulus sampling operation. A slower stimulus sampling rate was found under visual noise than was found with a noise-free display.
