  1. Age, height, weight, percentage of attention invested to the instructed focus are shown in mean with standard deviation in parentheses. Age, height, weight, right-handedness, and female per group were compared among the three groups using a one-way ANOVA. Percentage of attention invested between EXT and INT group was compared using a two-sample t-test
