Attention is more than prediction precision [Commentary on target article]

Bowman, Howard ; Filetti, Marco ; Wyble, Brad ; Olivers, Christian (2013)

A cornerstone of the target article is that, in a predictive coding framework, attention can be modelled by weighting prediction error with a measure of precision. We argue that this is not a complete explanation, especially in the light of ERP (event-related potentials) data showing large evoked responses for frequently presented target stimuli, which thus are predicted.
