IX. Appendices

1. Appendix I
This appendix contains two code samples. The first is the main code of a program for simulation of dual task, where the overall structure of the programming is evident. The second is an example of C++ classes developed for this project, demonstrating the building of more complex classes on the basis of simpler ones ('class inheritance'), modular programming and encapsulation.

Example of literature search strategy showing progression from wider to more specific terms. This search was undertaken with librarian guidance.
