This transient deficit in probe detection, termed the "attentional blink," depends on the type of item that immediately follows the letter target (Raymond, Shapiro, & Arnell, 1995). Two models have been proposed to account for this effect. The interference model of the attentional blink predicts that visual similarity between… CONTINUE READING
