The present study shows that search for a conjunction of color and orientation can be performed in parallel when the target is embedded in a spatially contiguous subset of nontarget elements. When the colored subset is spatially scattered among other items in the display, serial search through the colored subset is necessary. The results provide evidence for the notion of sequential parallel processing in which the first global stage allows the detection of a subset of elements defining adoi:10.1016/s0001-6918(96)00003-0 fatcat:szxf52qesjf2dohlvcm7etsb2a
