Optimal Allocation of Cognitive Resources to Spatial Location
Shaw, Marilyn L.; Shaw, Peter
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 3, 2, 201-11, May 77
From experiments showing that subjects differentially attend to parts of the visual field, psychologists have inferred a limitation on human visual information processing capacity. The model presented describes an optimal way to allocate a limited quantity of "cognitive resources", "attention" or "mental effort". An experiment tests this model. (Editor/RK)
