Exogenous Spatial Precuing Reliably Modulates Object Processing but Not Object Substitution Masking
Published online: 9 May 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Object substitution masking (OSM) is used in behavioral and imaging studies to investigate processes associated with the formation of a conscious percept. Reportedly, OSM occurs only...
Facilitation by Exogenous Attention for Static and Dynamic Gestalt Groups
Published online: 9 May 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Attentional mechanisms allow the brain to selectively allocate its resources to stimuli of interest within the huge amount of information reaching its sensory systems. The voluntary...
Gaze Direction and the Extraction of Egocentric Distance
Published online: 14 June 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract The angular declination of a target with respect to eye level is known to be an important cue to egocentric distance when objects are viewed or can be assumed to be resting on...
Guided Search for Triple Conjunctions
Published online: 9 July 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract A key tenet of feature integration theory and of related theories such as guided search (GS) is that the binding of basic features requires attention. This would seem to predict...
Hemifield Asymmetries Differentiate VSTM for Single- and Multiple-Feature Objects
Published online: 30 May 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Visual short-term memory (VSTM) is a capacity-limited system for maintaining visual information across brief durations. Limits in the amount of information held in memory reflect...
Hitting Ability and Perception of Object's Size: Evidence for a Negative Relation
Published online: 10 May 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract We examined the relation between motor performance and perception of object's size in near space. The general task was to repeatedly hit a target by means of pointing movements...
How Do People Order Stimuli?
Published online: 8 May 2014© Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract People may find it easier to construct an order after first representing stimuli on a scale or categorizing them, particularly when the number of stimuli to be ordered is large or when...
News from the Field
Published online: 7 August 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014VISUAL COGNITIONPast determines present in number spaceCicchini, G. M., Anobile, G., & Burr, D. C. (2014). Compres- sive mapping of number to space reflects dynamic encoding mechanisms,...
Reinstating Salience Effects over Time: The Influence of Stimulus Changes on Visual Selection Behavior over a Sequence of Eye Movements
Published online: 14 June 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Recently, we showed that salience affects initial saccades only in a static stimulus environment; subsequent saccades were unaffected by salience but, instead, were directed in...
Reward Expectation Influences Audiovisual Spatial Integration
Published online: 31 May 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract In order to determine the spatial location of an object that is simultaneously seen and heard, the brain assigns higher weights to the sensory inputs that provide the most reliable...
Saccade Latency Reveals Episodic Representation of Object Color
Published online: 14 May 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract While previous studies suggest that identity, but not color, plays a role in episodic object representation, such studies have typically used tasks in which only identity is relevant,...
Search Asymmetry and Eye Movements in Infants and Adults
Published online: 24 May 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Search asymmetry is characterized by the detection of a feature-present target amidst feature-absent distractors being efficient and unaffected by the number of distractors, whereas...
Setting Semantics: Conceptual Set Can Determine the Physical Properties That Capture Attention
Published online: 15 May 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract The ability of a stimulus to capture visuospatial attention depends on the interplay between its bottom-up saliency and its relationship to an observer's top-down control set,...
Size (Mostly) Doesn't Matter: The Role of Set Size in Object Substitution Masking
Published online: 13 June 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Conscious detection and discrimination of a visual target stimulus can be prevented by the presentation a spatially nonoverlapping, but temporally trailing, visual masking stimulus....
Slope Estimation and Viewing Distance of the Observer
Published online: 14 June 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract The overestimation of geographical slant is one of the most sizable visual illusions. However, in some cases estimates of close-by slopes within the range of the observer's personal...

The Effects of Saccade-Contingent Changes on Oculomotor Capture: Salience Is Important Even beyond the First Oculomotor Response
Published online: 31 May 2014# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Whenever a novel scene is presented, visual salience merely plays a transient role in oculomotor selection. Unique stimulus properties, such as a distinct and, thereby, salient...
The Error Protection Impact of Inhibitory After-Effects in a Location-Based Task and Its Preservation with Practice

Threatening Scenes but Not Threatening Faces Shorten Time-to-Contact Estimates
Published online: 9 May 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract We previously reported that time-to-contact (TTC) judgments of threatening scene pictures (e.g., frontal attacks) resulted in shortened estimations and were mediated by cognitive processes,...
Visual Motion Shifts Saccade Targets
Published online: 3 June 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Saccades are made thousands of times a day and are the principal means of localizing objects in our environment. However, the saccade system faces the challenge of accurately localizing...
