Abstract:

The literature on attention and related topics has increased voluminously in recent years. This review on selective attention deals only with limited aspects of the area. It is in two parts. The first part deals with one aspect of selective attention, as exemplified by the dichotic listening task. Experimental work and theoretical models, published since 1960, are reviewed and some suggestions for future work in this area are included. The second part deals with various neurophysiological mechanisms which have been proposed as involved in the process of selective attention. Various models are reviewed, particularly work published since 1906, with emphasis on data derived from human experiments, in so far as possible. Author
