- The role of attention and familiarity in face identificationMargaret C Jackson
University of Wales, Bangor, Wales
Percept Psychophys 68:543-57. 2006..T2 face was unaffected by lag, suggesting that familiarity protects against atemporal attentional bottleneck These findings do not support propositions that face identification is "special" in its need for attentional control..
- Successive episodes produce direction contrast effects in motion perceptionJ E Raymond
School of Psychology, University of Wales, Bangor, Gwynedd
Vision Res 38:579-89. 1998..We suggest that successive direction contrast effects may reflect activity of higher-order perceptual organization mechanisms...
- Selective visual attention and motivation: the consequences of value learning in an attentional blink taskJane E Raymond
School of Psychology, Penrallt Rd, Bangor University, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 2AS, United Kingdom
Psychol Sci 20:981-8. 2009..Motivational salience acts independently of attention to modulate simple perceptual decisions, but when attention is limited, visual processing is biased in favor of reward-associated stimuli...
- Emotional devaluation of distracting patterns and faces: a consequence of attentional inhibition during visual search?Jane E Raymond
School of Psychology, University of Wales, Gwynedd, Wales, UK
J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 31:1404-15. 2005..An attentional inhibition account is offered to explain these effects of attention on emotional evaluation...
- Interactions of attention, emotion and motivationJane Raymond
School of Psychology, Bangor University, Bangor, Gwynedd, UK
Prog Brain Res 176:293-308. 2009..The results indicate that some aspects of motivation act on selection independently of traditionally defined attention and other aspects interact with it...
- Selective attention determines emotional responses to novel visual stimuliJane E Raymond
University of Wales, Bangor, Wales, United Kingdom
Psychol Sci 14:537-42. 2003..This finding also casts doubt on the conventional marketing wisdom that any exposure is good exposure...
- Priming reveals attentional modulation of human motion sensitivityJ E Raymond
School of Psychology, University of Wales, Bangor, Gwynedd, UK
Vision Res 38:2863-7. 1998..Neither sensory adaptation nor opponent direction mechanisms can account for these data. Rather, processes initiated by visual selection must underlie these dramatic changes in motion sensitivity...
- New objects, not new features, trigger the attentional blinkJane E Raymond
School of Psychology, University of Wales, Bangor, Wales, Gwynedd, United Kingdom
Psychol Sci 14:54-9. 2003..The AB appears to reflect limitations in the creation of new object representations, rather than temporal limitations of awareness per se...
- High familiarity enhances visual change detection for face stimuliHeather Buttle
University of Wales, Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales
Percept Psychophys 65:1296-306. 2003..The results suggest that superfamiliarity promotes highly efficient visual processing and may especially activate a configural mode of analysis...
- Familiarity enhances visual working memory for facesMargaret C Jackson
School of Psychology, University of Wales Bangor, Bangor, Gwynedd, UK
J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 34:556-68. 2008..These results demonstrate that storage of items in visual WM can be enhanced if robust visual representations of them already exist in long-term memory...
- Efficient attentional selection predicts distractor devaluation: event-related potential evidence for a direct link between attention and emotionMonika Kiss
Birkbeck College, University of London, London, UK
J Cogn Neurosci 19:1316-22. 2007..Variations in attentional selectivity across trials can predict subsequent emotional responses, strongly suggesting that attention is closely associated with subsequent affective evaluation...
- Deficits of motion transparency perception in adult developmental dyslexics with normal unidirectional motion sensitivityGary T Hill
School of Psychology, University of Wales, Bangor, Gwynedd LL57 2DG, UK
Vision Res 42:1195-203. 2002..This finding provides little support for the magnocellular deficit hypothesis and, rather, points to abnormality within dorsal extrastriate cortical areas that subserve the integration and segmentation of complex motion signals...
- The affective consequences of visual attention in preview searchMark J Fenske
University of Wales, Bangor, Wales
Psychon Bull Rev 11:1055-61. 2004....
- Attentional inhibition has social-emotional consequences for unfamiliar facesMark J Fenske
MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Harvard Medical School, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA
Psychol Sci 16:753-8. 2005..on a darker background"). These results suggest that attentional inhibition can be associated with socially relevant stimuli, such as faces, and can have specific, deleterious effects on social-emotional judgments...
- Influence of attentional demands on the processing of emotional facial expressions in the amygdalaLaetitia Silvert
University of Oxford, UK
Neuroimage 38:357-66. 2007..Thus, emotional processing of peripheral faces in the amygdala also appears to depend on the available perceptual attentional resources...
