We investigate, by constructing suitable models, the manner in which attention and executive function are observed to interact, including some aspects of the influence of value/emotion on this interaction. Attention is modelled using the recent engineering control model (Corollary Discharge of Attention Movement, CODAM), which includes suitable working(More)
Recent neuropsychological investigations of the interaction of emotion and attention suggest that emotional value can have a strong effect on the allocation of perceptual and attentional resources. In this paper we focus on a psychophysical study that reports an enhancement of contrast sensitivity to stimuli preceded by emotional cues. We have modelled the(More)
Recent studies of working memory have shown that the network of brain areas that supports working memory function overlaps heavily with the well studied network of selective attention. It has thus been suggested that working memory may operate by means of a repeated focusing of attention on the internal representations of the items that need to be(More)
