Abstract:

A series of experiments using pupillometric and electroencephalographic measures are reviewed. In each experiment, a close relation is observed between the psychological processes of attention and the physiological indications of increased phasic activation. From these data, the rudiments of an activation theory of attention are proposed. This study was also published in The Human Brain by M. C. Wittrock, et al., 1977.
