Attention, Perception, and Intelligence.
Cooper, Lynn A.; Regan, Dennis T.
Prepared as part of a larger work on human intelligence, this report examines basic attentional and perceptual contributions to intelligence. The report is organized into two sections: the first summarizes and evaluates research that has tried to uncover basic information processing skills that account for individual differences in intelligence; the second considers the possibility that more flexible aspects of cognitive functioning might make more substantial contributions to individual differences in intelligence than do basic information processing skills. The report concludes with a general evaluation of the research reviewed and an outline of promising directions for future research in the area. (FL)
