Electrophysiological Indices of Target and Distractor Processing in Visual Search
Attentional selection of a target presented among distractors can be indexed with an event-related potential (ERP) component known as the N2pc. Theoretical interpretation of the N2pc has suggestedExpand

Electrophysiological Evidence of the Capture of Visual Attention
We investigated the ability of salient yet task-irrelevant stimuli to capture attention in two visual search experiments. Participants were presented with circular search arrays that contained aExpand

Electrophysiological Evidence of the Capture of Visual Attention
The presence of a salient distractor interferes with visual search. According to the salience-driven selection hypothesis, this interference is because of an initial deployment of attention to theExpand

Reduced attentional capture in action video game players
Recent studies indicate that playing action video games improves performance on a number of attention-based tasks. However, it remains unclear whether action video game experience primarily affectsExpand

Inhibition of Return in the Covert Deployment of Attention: Evidence from Human Electrophysiology
People are slow to react to objects that appear at recently attended locations. This delay—known as inhibition of return (IOR)—is believed to aid search of the visual environment by discouragingExpand

Early multisensory interactions affect the competition among multiple visual objects
In dynamic cluttered environments, audition and vision may benefit from each other in determining what deserves further attention and what does not. We investigated the underlying neural mechanismsExpand

Valence, Not Utility, Underlies Reward-Driven Prioritization in Human Vision
Objects associated with reward draw attention and evoke enhanced activity in visual cortex. What is the underlying mechanism? One possibility is that reward's impact on vision is mediated by uniqueExpand

Reward creates oculomotor salience
Summary Theories of animal approach behaviour suggest that reward can create low-level biases in perceptual and motor systems, potentiating the processing of reward-associated environmental stimuliExpand

A temporal dependency account of attentional inhibition in oculomotor control
ABSTRACT We used concurrent electroencephalogram (EEG) and eye tracking to investigate the role of covert attentional mechanisms in the control of oculomotor behavior. Human participants made speededExpand

Priming resolves perceptual ambiguity in visual search: Evidence from behaviour and electrophysiology
Visual search for a target among distractors is often speeded when the target-defining feature is repeated from trial to trial, compared to when it changes. It has been proposed that whether thisExpand
