Setting semantics: Conceptual set can determine the physical properties that capture attention
The ability of a stimulus to capture visuospatial attention depends on the interplay between its bottom-up saliency and its relationship to an observer’s top-down control set, such that stimuli capture attention if they match the pre-defined properties that distinguish a searched-for target from distractors (Folk, Remington, & Johnston, 1992).
