This research supported by my grant from AFOSR this year completed some of the projects outlined in the first annual report and initiated some new ones. The focus remained on the visual processing of features and objects, the role of spatial attention and the representation of complex visual patterns in perception and memory. Studies of visual search explored the coding of features at potentially more abstract levels than simple luminance filters: Among the features studied were orientation (for lines, dot pairs and edges), orientation and size (for shapes whose boundaries were defined by discontinuities of texture, motion and depth), and illusory contours. Another series of experiments tested the mechanisms underlying the coding of feature conjunctions, using evidence from search latencies and illusory conjunction errors. The results led to a proposed revision of my earlier feature integration theory. Two other studies looked at memory for visual patterns. One studied the effects of prolonged practice (thousands of trials) on the coding of visual patterns. At the other extreme, an experiment explored the effects on memory just one to five presentations of similar patterns. In both cases, we found striking specificity in the coding of these meaningless shapes and in their effects on subjects' later experiences with the same stimuli. Patterned conjunctions of lines, once formed, appear to persist in visual memory and to facilitate their later re- perception provided that the same task and context are also reinstated.

From perception to consciousness : searching with Anne Treisman by Anne Treisman ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anyone interested in the study of attention will have had some exposure to the work of Anne Treisman. Anne Treisman has been one of the most influential cognitive psychologists in the last 50 years. Her research and theoretical insights have influenced a variety of disciplines, including vision sciences, auditory sciences, cognitive psychology, cognitive neurosciences, philosophy, psychiatry, neuropsychology, and behavioral neurology. She is best known for her work on attention. Early in her career, much of that work involved auditory stimuli. Her later work has been primarily in the realm of visual attention. She has been especially concerned with the interactions among visual perception, attention, and memory as they relate to conscious and unconscious experience. Her Feature Integration Theory has been one of the organizing ideas in the field for three decades. While still a graduate student at Oxford, she helped launch the modern study of attention. In the present volume, several of her most influential papers are reprinted (including some of the harder to find early work). To accompany these reprints, the editors invited experts to comment and/or to show how their own work had been shaped by Treisman's ideas and findings. The result is a scientifically rich ride through the world of ideas inspired by Treisman's work. The contributed chapters include discussions of auditory and visual attention, the role of features in selection, parallel and serial processing, and automaticity. They describe the roots and evolution of Feature Integration Theory and related models like Guided Search. They explore the interactions of attention and perception at the cognitive, neuropsychological, and biological levels. Readers can consider the critical role of binding in perception, the role of attention in scene perception, as well as the influence of cognitive load, memory, reflection, and perceptual learning on early and late processing. They will see how methods to study conscious perceptual awareness have evolved over the years
Interpretations ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To construct the outside world inside our heads requires us to select, organize, and interpret sensations, transforming them into perceptions that create meaning. With sensory overload, what slips through to the final translation? Illustrates how change blindness and selective attention can impact interpretation. Such clues as figure-ground, segmentation, and grouping; depth perception and motion allow us to decipher sensory input with a degree of confidence
Connections ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A solitary figure walks on the beach at dawn. Although he is alert to his surroundings, his sensory systems take in only a fraction of the energy that envelops him. That which does reach the receptor cells is captured and converted into signals that can be recognized by the central nervous system. The ultimate destination for these signals is the cerebral cortex

Visual Perception and Memory of Objects ( )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We have worked on a number of different projects relating to visual perception and memory for features and objects, exploring the processing that converts visual sensory data to representations of objects and events. An important focus has been to define the role played by attention in this processing and in the - memory representations which result. I divide this report into four main sections: One deals with studies of relatively early visual processing of features; another with the role of attention in feature integration; another major project explores the effects of the initial perception of novel objects on their reperception, either immediately, after a single presentation, or after multiple trials or long delays, using negative priming tasks to explore the memory traces formed for novel objects, both with and without attention; the final section explores the notion of object tokens in the context of perceptual learning and priming in visual search automatization.
