Event-related Electroencephalographic Lateralizations Mark Individual Differences in Spatial and Nonspatial Visual Selection

Published in: Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Volume 30, Issue 4, April 2018, 482-497 Abstract “Selective attention controls the distribution of our visual system’s limited processing resources to stimuli in the visual field. Two independent parameters of visual selection can be quantified by modeling an individual’s performance in a partial-report task based on the computational theory of visual attention (TVA): (i) top–down control α, the relative attentional weighting of relevant over irrelevant stimuli, and (ii) spatial bias wλ, the relative attentional weighting of stimuli in the left versus right hemifield. In this study, we found that visual event-related electroencephalographic lateralizations marked interindividual differences… Read More
