An understanding of attention is arguably one of the most important goals of the cognitive sciences and yet also has proven to be one of the most elusive. Most attention researchers will agree that a major problem has been agreeing on a definition of the term and the scope of the phenomena to which it applies. There are no doubt as many explanations for this state of affairs as there are those who consider themselves “attention researchers.” However, most will probably agree that, in large… CONTINUE READING
