    Helena M Purkis
    School of Psychology, University of Queensland, QLD, Australia
    Emotion 7:314-23. 2007
    ..The authors suggest that although snakes and spiders are preferentially attended to, negative evaluations are not automatically elicited during this processing...

    Helena M Purkis
    School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
    Emotion 11:1484-8. 2011
    ..Where this leaves the Empress of Racnoss, we are unsure...

    Ottmar V Lipp
    School of Psychology, The University of Queensland, QLD 4072, Australia
    Neurosci Lett 427:94-8. 2007
    ..This finding suggests that the blink reflex facilitation observed at a SOA of 0 ms with the onset of a go signal reflects on the summation of sub- and supra-threshold activations of the startle pathway...
  4. ncbi Better safe than sorry: simplistic fear-relevant stimuli capture attention
    Sarah J Forbes
    University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
    Cogn Emot 25:794-804. 2011
    ..The three experiments indicate that even very simplistic images of fear-relevant animals can divert attention...

    Sakinah S J Alhadad
    School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Queensland, 4072, Australia
    Psychophysiology 45:1068-78. 2008
    ..This suggests that the continuous nature of a task is not critical in determining the attentional mechanisms engaged...

    Ottmar V Lipp
    School of Psychology, University of Queensland, QLD 4072, Australia
    Neurosci Lett 409:124-7. 2006

    Maria Carmen Fernandez
    Department of Physiology, University of Granada, Spain
    Int J Psychophysiol 69:27-32. 2008
    ..This pattern of results indicates that habituation to startle eliciting stimuli will impair defense reflexes elicited on subsequent test trials and suggests some interrelation between the two reflex systems...
