The Impact of Scaling Rather Than Shaping Attention: Changes in the Scale of Attention Using Global Motion Inducers Influence Both Spatial and Temporal Acuity

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


Originally, the zoom lens model of attention scaling proposed that narrowing attention to a small area of the visual field improves visual perception (Eriksen & James, 1986). A large body of empirical evidence supports this model, showing that narrow attention enhances performance in spatial acuity tasks. Despite this, the zoom lens model does not explicitly consider how attention scaling influences different elements of vision, for example, temporal processing. More recent models of attention...[Show more]
