Scaffolded attention in time: 'Everyday hallucinations' of rhythmic patterns from regular auditory beats.

It is shown how 'everyday hallucinations' of rhythmic patterns can arise in the absence of explicit sensory structure, and the relationship between attention and events is bidirectional: event structure can guide attention, but attention can also create event structure in the first place.

How to Create Objects With Your Mind: From Object-Based Attention to Attention-Based Objects

It is concluded that attention not only operates over objects but also can effectively create object representations.

Why people see things that are not there: A novel Perception and Attention Deficit model for recurrent complex visual hallucinations

A novel Perception and Attention Deficit (PAD) model for RCVH is proposed, suggesting that a combination of impaired attentional binding and poor sensory activation of a correct proto-object, in conjunction with a relatively intact scene representation, allows the intrusion of a hallucinatory proto- object into a scene perception.

A Behavioral Index of Imagery Ability in Social Anxiety

Individuals with social anxiety often report recurrent, distorted, negative images of themselves. However, previous research has relied exclusively on self-report methods that assess the content of

Functional representations common to visual perception and imagination.

The speed and accuracy of the responses to the probes as well as the functional dependencies of the reaction times on structural variables were essentially the same whether the figural pattern was imagined, remembered, or actually seen.

Mechanisms of imagery-perception interaction.

In four experiments, subjects mentally projected images of letters into the visual field, and either detected or detected and localized point threshold stimuli that fell on or off the image, consistent with the hypothesis that the representations at the interface between imagery and perception have an array format.

Sustaining visual attention in the face of distraction: a novel gradual-onset continuous performance task

Sustained attention is a fundamental aspect of human cognition and has been widely studied in applied and clinical contexts. Despite a growing understanding of how attention varies throughout task

What you see is what you set: sustained inattentional blindness and the capture of awareness.

The authors conclude that many--but not all--aspects of attention capture apply to inattentional blindness but that these 2 classes of phenomena remain importantly distinct.
