Night Boat to Tangier by Kevin Barry Canongate Another black comedy from the author of Beatlebone , about two former gangsters stuck in a southern Spanish port. The Theory of Visual Attention TVA provides a mathematical formalisation of the "biased competition" account of visual attention. Applying this model to individual performance in a free recall task allows the estimation of 5 independent attentional parameters: visual short-term memory VSTM capacity, speed of information processing, perceptual threshold of visual detection; attentional weights representing spatial distribution of attention spatial bias , and the top-down selectivity index.
While the TVA focuses on selection in space, complementary accounts of attention describe how attention is maintained over time, and how temporal processes interact with selection. A growing body of evidence indicates that different facets of attention interact and share common neural substrates. The aim of the current study was to modulate a spatial attentional bias via transfer effects, based on a mechanistic understanding of the interplay between spatial, selective and temporal aspects of attention.
