Ruz and Lupiáñez have provided a comprehensive review of the attentional capture research and we agree with their conclusion that attentional capture is automatic by default, but can be modulated by endogenous  ...  One such endogenous factor is an attentional control setting, whereby topdown processes largely determine what type of visual events will capture attention.  ...  Modulability does Criteria for defining a purely stimulus-driven attentional capture.  ...

Do isoluminant color changes capture attention?

Anthony Lambert, Ian Wells, Matthew Kean
2003 Perception & Psychophysics  
Under these conditions, it was found that both luminance and isoluminance cues captured attention.  ...  In Experiments 1 and 2, it was found that peripheral luminance cues captured attention, whereas peripheral isoluminance cues did not.  ...  to the degree of spatial correspondence between features of the cue display and features of the target display.  ...

Attentional capture by auto- and allo-cues

Robert Rauschenberger
2003 Psychonomic Bulletin & Review  
In summary, then, practice, knowledge of the target location, and/or knowledge of the target-defining feature(s) can all prevent abrupt onsets from capturing attention. Contingent capture.  ...  Any spatial allocation of attention to the feature singleton would be the consequence of the second stage, rather than the result of capture by the singleton.  ...  Here, the term is used more generally to refer to any stimulus that indicates a spatial location and, thereby, has the potential of directing visual attention to that spatial location, regardless of whether  ...

Visual selective attention: A theoretical analysis

Jan Theeuwes
1993 Acta Psychologica  
Again, similar to overt orienting, covert attention may be controlled endogenously by directing attention to a location in visual space or may be captured exogenously by a peripheral sensory signal (Jonides  ...  The letter 'E' can obviously be discriminated from the letter 'F' purely on the bases of a single feature ' _ '.  ...  'The beginnings of visual perception.

Neural Correlates of the Spatial and Expectancy Components of Endogenous and Stimulus-Driven Orienting of Attention in the Posner Task

F. Doricchi, E. Macci, M. Silvetti, E. Macaluso
2009 Cerebral Cortex  
Voluntary orienting of visual attention is conventionally measured in tasks with predictive central cues followed by frequent valid targets at the cued location and by infrequent invalid targets at the  ...  This implies that invalid targets entail both spatial reorienting of attention and breaching of the expected spatial congruency between cues and targets.  ...  Here, we wish to refine this interpretation by proposing that the TPJ activation by contingent attentional capture originates from the mismatch produced by the occurrence of attentionally relevant features  ...

Exogenous (automatic) attention to emotional stimuli: a review

Luis Carretié
2014 Cognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience  
The modulatory effects of the nature of distractors capturing attention, of the ongoing task characteristics, and of individual differences, previously proposed as mediating factors, are also described  ...  The most conspicuous result is that, as confirmed by behavioral and/or neural indices, emotional distractors capture exogenous attention to a significantly greater extent than do neutral distractors.  ...  This work was supported by grants PSI2011-26314 from the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad of Spain (MINECO) and CEMU-2012-004 from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.  ...

Contingent attentional capture or delayed allocation of attention?

Roger W. Remington, Charles L. Folk, John P. Mclean
2001 Perception & Psychophysics  
Under certain circumstances, external stimuli will elicit an involuntary shift of spatial attention, referred to as attentional capture.  ...  The experiments provide evidence that costs and benefits in spatial cuing experiments do reflect the on-line capture of attention.  ...  attention independent of the current task goals.  ...

Against the View that Consciousness and Attention are Fully Dissociable

Giorgio Marchetti
2012 Frontiers in Psychology  
I will present evidence that: there are various forms of attention and consciousness; not all forms of attention produce the same kind of consciousness; not all forms of consciousness are produced by the  ...  same kind of attention; there can be low-level attention (or preliminary attention), whether of an endogenous or exogenous kind, without consciousness; attention cannot be considered the same thing as  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I am grateful to the two reviewers and the editor for their insightful comments, which helped me better frame my thought, and to Wendy Piemonte for the English revision of the article.  ...

Sounds can boost the awareness of visual events through attention without cross-modal integration

Márta Szabina Pápai, Salvador Soto-Faraco
2017 Scientific Reports  
Despite it is clear that switches of perceptual state can be triggered by transient stimuli 23,24 , the significant impact of endogenous attention in BR is also well-known.  ...  What is often at stake in these claims of automaticity is the assertion that multisensory integration can proceed in its full strength in the absence of endogenous, top-down modulation of attention.  ...  Acknowledgements This study was funded by a Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte, Ref.  ...

Attention and Performance

Harold Pashler, James C. Johnston, Eric Ruthruff
2001 Annual Review of Psychology  
Stimulus attributes (e.g. onsets, transients) thought to have a "wired-in" ability to capture attention automatically have been shown to capture attention only as a consequence of voluntarily adopted task  ...  Recent work on task switching is also described; optimal engagement in a task set is proving to be intimately tied to learning operations triggered by the actual performance of a new task, not merely the  ...  Thus, it was argued that abrupt-onset stimuli can capture attention independently of the will of the subject.  ...

An effective attentional set for a specific colour does not prevent capture by infrequently presented motion distractors

James D. Retell, Stefanie I. Becker, Roger W. Remington
2016 Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology  
Do we always need to be set for an event to be captured by it, or is there a class of events that draw attention involuntarily even when unconnected to task goals?  ...  are contingent on attentional control settings induced by task demands.  ...  A target defined by a conjunction of features should not facilitate disengagement from the motion cue.  ...

A Computational Model of Auditory Selective Attention

S.N. Wrigley, G.J. Brown
2004 IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks  
Furthermore, a number of predictions are made and a psychophysical experiment is conducted to investigate the time course of attentional allocation in a binaural streaming task.  ...  This study presents a conceptual framework for auditory selective attention in which the formation of groups and streams is heavily influenced by conscious and subconscious attention.  ...  In this case, attentional selection occurs by top-down weighting of feature maps which are relevant to the current task.  ...

Lorella Battelli, Vincent Walsh, Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Patrick Cavanagh
2008 Current Opinion in Neurobiology  
Therefore, the bilateral origin of the deficit might distinguish purely visual timing deficits from spatial ones.  ...  Finally, recent psychophysical studies have shown that exogenous attention is finely tuned to the perception of transients, which can affect the timing of independent visual features such as color and  ...
