Attention, Perception and Psychophysics

Attention, Perception and Psychophysics is a journal covering sensory processes, perception, and psychophysics. Since it was founded in 1966 it is printed eight times a year in January, February, April, May, July, August, October, and November. The journal is published by Psychonomic Society.Subjects in Attention, Perception and Psychophysics include: Psychology and Psychiatry.

Cognitive Load Eliminates the Global Perceptual Bias for Unlimited Exposure Durations
Published online: 15 January 2013© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract In the present study, we used Navon-type Cognitive Psychology 9: 353-383 (1977) hierarchical patterns to demonstrate that cognitive load eliminates a global perceptual bias and...
Haptic Distal Spatial Perception Mediated by Strings: Size at a Distance and Egocentric Localization Based on Ellipse Geometry
Published online: 14 November 2012# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Participants explored ellipse perimeters defined by fixed-length strings, held taut by their moving finger, with ends attached to two fixed hooks (foci). Participants haptically...
News from the Field
DIVIDED ATTENTIONTracking limits reveal serial attentionHolcombe, A. O. & Chen, W-Y. (2013). Splitting attention reduces temporal resolution from 7 Hz, when tracking one object, to <3 Hz, when tracking three. Journal of Vision, 13 (1), 12.Serial...
Rewarding Context Accelerates Implicit Guidance in Visual Search
Published online: 30 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract It is well known that observers can implicitly learn the spatial context of complex visual searches, such that future searches through repeated contexts are completed faster than...
Spatial Interference between Attended Items Engenders Serial Visual Processing
Published online: 10 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract A pair of experiments investigated the architecture of visual processing, parallel versus serial, across high and low levels of spatial interference in a divided attention task....
Structure-from-Motion: Dissociating Perception, Neural Persistence, and Sensory Memory of Illusory Depth and Illusory Rotation
Published online: 13 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract In the structure-from-motion paradigm, physical motion on a screen produces the vivid illusion of an object rotating in depth. Here, we show how to dissociate illusory depth and...
Temporal Characteristics of Overt Attentional Behavior during Category Learning
Published online: 14 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Many theories of category learning incorporate mechanisms for selective attention, typically implemented as attention weights that change on a trial-by-trial basis. This is because...
The Effect of Vertical and Horizontal Symmetry on Memory for Tactile Patterns in Late Blind Individuals
Published online: 13 November 2012# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Visual stimuli that exhibit vertical symmetry are easier to remember than stimuli symmetric along other axes, an advantage that extends to the haptic modality as well. Critically,...
The Effects of Sampling and Internal Noise on the Representation of Ensemble Average Size
Published online: 28 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Increasing numbers of studies have explored human observers' ability to rapidly extract statistical descriptions from collections of similar items (e.g., the average size and...
The Ground Is Dominant in Infants' Perception of Relative Distance
Published online: 10 November 2012# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract When making relative distance judgments, adults attend to information provided by the ground surface and generally ignore information provided by ceiling surfaces. In the present...
The Perceived Onset Position of a Moving Target: Effects of Trial Contexts Are Evoked by Different Attentional Allocations
Published online: 14 November 2012# The Author(s) 2012. This article is published with open access at Springerlink.comAbstract Previous studies have shown that the localization of the perceived onset position of a moving target varies with the trial...
Top-Down Task Sets for Combined Features: Behavioral and Electrophysiological Evidence for Two Stages in Attentional Object Selection
Published online: 10 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract We studied whether visual search for targets defined by a combination of features from different dimensions is guided by separately represented target features or by an integrated...
Using Response Time Distributions to Examine Top-Down Influences on Attentional Capture
Published online: 14 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Three experiments examined contingent attentional capture, which is the finding that cuing effects are larger when cues are perceptually similar to a target than when they are...
Visual Search in Divided Areas: Dividers Initially Interfere with and Later Facilitate Visual Search
Published online: 30 November 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract A common search paradigm requires observers to search for a target among undivided spatial arrays of many items. Yet our visual environment is populated with items that are typically...
What We Remember Affects How We See: Spatial Working Memory Steers Saccade Programming
Published online: 24 October 2012© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2012Abstract Relationships between visual attention, saccade programming, and visual working memory have been hypothesized for over a decade. Awh, Jonides, and Reuter- Lorenz (Journal of Experimental...
