  • A two-process theory of human information processing is proposed and applied to detection, search, and attention phenomena. [...] Key Method A series of studies using both reaction time and accuracy measures is presented, which traces these concepts in the form of automatic detection and controlled, search through the areas of detection, search, and attention. Results in these areas are shown to arise from common mechanisms. Automatic detection is shown to develop following consistent mapping of stimuli to…Expand Abstract
