Detection of object onsets and offsets: Does the primacy of onset persist even with bias for detecting offset?

Abstract

Onset primacy is a robust visual phenomenon in which appearance of new objects (onsets) in a scene more effectively captures observers' attention compared with disappearance of previously viewed objects (offsets). We hypothesized that the human attentional system is programmed by default to prioritize the processing of onsets, because quick detection of… (More)
