Attentional selection by distractor suppression

  title={Attentional selection by distractor suppression},
  author={Giovanni Caputo and Sergio Su{\'a}rez Guerra},
  journal={Vision Research},
Selective attention was studied in displays containing singletons popping out for their odd form or color. The target was defined as the form-singleton, the distractor as the color-singleton. The task was to discriminate the length of a longer line inside the target. Target-distractor similarity was controlled using a threshold measurement as dependent variable in experiments in which distractor presence vs absence, bottom-up vs top-down selection (through knowledge of target features), and… CONTINUE READING
