Testing the generality of the zoom-lens model: Evidence for visual-pathway specific effects of attended-region size on perception

Goodhew, Stephanie C; Lawrence, Rebecca; Edwards, Mark

Description

There are volumes of information available to process in visual scenes. Visual spatial attention is a critically important selection mechanism that prevents these volumes from overwhelming our visual system's limited-capacity processing resources. We were interested in understanding the effect of the size of the attended area on visual perception. The prevailing model of attended-region size across cognition, perception, and neuroscience is the zoom-lens model. This model stipulates that the...[Show more]
