Spatial attention modulates tactile change detection

Abstract

People often fail to detect changes between successively presented tactile patterns, a phenomenon known as tactile change blindness. In this study, we investigated whether changes introduced to tactile patterns are detected better when a participant’s attention is focused on the location where the change occurs. Across two experiments, participants (N = 55… (More)
