Attentional capture by deviant sounds: A non-contingent form of auditory distraction?

Article English OPEN
Vachon, F; Labonte, K; Marsh, John Everett;

The occurrence of an unexpected, infrequent sound in an otherwise homogeneous auditory background tends to disrupt the ongoing cognitive task. This ‘deviation effect’ is typically explained in terms of attentional capture whereby the deviant sound draws attention away f... View more
