There are two strategies for selecting relevant information from a visual scene: according to either its salience or its relevance for behavioral goals. Although there is broad evidence for the existence of both mechanisms, there has been a debate concerning the impact of top-down control on salience-based selection. We investigated whether salient but irrelevant information is filtered by the visual system and what role the organization of the visual system plays in selection. Read More

Four pop-out search experiments investigated whether dimension-based visual attention is top-down modulable. Observers searched for singleton feature targets defined, variably across trials, by a color or an orientation difference to nontargets. Observers were precued to the most probable target-defining dimension (e. Read More

Objects characterized by a unique visual feature may pop out of their environment. When participants have to search for such "odd-one-out" targets, detection is facilitated when targets are consistently defined within the same feature dimension (e.g. Read More
