suppression

Manuscript accepted for publication in Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance!

Our recent paper on spatial and feature-specific distractor suppression just got accepted for publication in Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Performance and Perception. In this paper, we show that spatial suppression due to statistical regularities regarding the distractor is a consequence of spatial as well as feature-specific suppression components.

Our recent paper on distractor suppression just got accepted for publication in Attention, Perception and Psychophysics. In this paper, we address the possibility that previously observed spatial suppression is actually target enhancement. In two experiments, we show that (I) spatial suppression is not observed when there are only spatial regularities regarding the target, and that (II) spatial suppression is observed as a consequence of spatial regularities regarding the distractor even if there are no spatial regularities regarding the target.

Attention

Attention is the fundamental mechanism that determines what information we parse from the environment.

Selection History

Selection history describes the phenomenon that what we have attended in the past will determine what we pay attention to in the present.

Another manuscript published in PsyArXiv!

We just uploaded a new manuscript on PsyArXiv. We report our recent findings on distractor suppression. We show that spatial suppression due to statistical regularities regarding the distractor is a consequence of spatial as well as feature-specific suppression components.

We conclude that spatial suppression is the result of spatial regularities regarding the distractor and not the target; and that the mechanism is location suppression and not target enhancement.
