  • Can salient stimuli, such as abrupt onsets, capture attention? Some researchers consistently find that they do, regardless of the observer’s current goals, whereas others consistently find the opposite. The present research begins with the observation that different theoretical camps consistently rely on different types of visual search: letter vs. color. In the present pre-cuing experiments, I directly compared these two approaches using identical stimulus displays, changing only the search… CONTINUE READING
