Selective attention is critical for controlling the input to mental processes. Attentional mechanisms act not only to select relevant stimuli but also to exclude irrelevant stimuli. There is evidence that we can actively ignore irrelevant information. We measured neural activity relating to successfully ignoring distracters (using preview search) and found(More)
Observers can use spatial scale information flexibly depending on categorisation task and on their prior sensitisation. Here, we explore whether attentional modulation of spatial frequency processing at early stages of visual analysis may be responsible. In three experiments, we find that observers' perception of spatial frequency (SF) band-limited scene(More)
We measured behavioural performance and fMRI activity whilst old and young adults performed a temporal segmentation task ('preview search'). Being able to select parts of the visual world to be attended or ignored is a critical visual skill. Both old and young adults were able to improve their performance on a difficult search task when some of the(More)
