Introducing a Control Condition in the Classic Oddball Paradigm: Oddballs Are Overestimated in Duration Not Only Because of Their Oddness
Published online: 2 April 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Three experiments assessed whether participants perceive infrequent stimuli (oddballs) to last longer than frequent ones (standards). The classical oddball paradigm was modified...
Irrelevant Reward and Selection Histories Have Different Influences on Task-Relevant Attentional Selection
Published online: 27 March 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Task-relevant and physically salient features influence visual selective attention. In the present study, we investigated the influence of task-irrelevant and physically nonsalient...
Limited Capacity for Memory Tasks with Multiple Features within a Single Object
Published online: 6 May 2015# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Memory for multiple features might be limited by the number of features, the number of objects, or both. To focus on the role of features, we tested memory for a variable number...
Low Cognitive Load Strengthens Distractor Interference While High Load Attenuates When Cognitive Load and Distractor Possess Similar Visual Characteristics
Published online: 27 March 2015# The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Studies on visual cognitive load have reported consistent of distractor interference when distractors have visual characteristic that are similar to the cognitive load. Some...

Oculomotor Capture by New and Unannounced Color Singletons during Visual Search
Published online: 2 April 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract The surprise capture hypothesis states that a stimulus will capture attention to the extent that it is preattentively available and deviates from task-expectancies. Interestingly,...
