EPS mid-career award 2014: the control of attention in visual search - cognitive and neural mechanisms

Article English OPEN
Eimer, Martin;
  • Publisher: Taylor and Francis
  • Subject: psyc

In visual search, observers try to find known target objects among distractors in visual scenes where the location of the targets is uncertain. This review article discusses the attentional processes that are active during search and their neural basis. Four successive ... View more
