Computational Models of Visual Selective Attention : A Review

  title={Computational Models of Visual Selective Attention : A Review},
  author={Dietmar Heinke and Glyn W. Humphreys},
We review some of the major computational models of visual selective attention in terms of how they apply to psychological data and to theoretical concepts derived from experiments concerned with stimulus filtering, visual search and spatial cueing. We also review attempts to model neuropsychological disorders of visual object recognition and attention, including visual agnosia and neglect. We highlight how computational models can unite several dichotomies in psychological models: space-based… CONTINUE READING
