Depth of Nontarget Processing in an Attention Task.
Johnston, William A.; Heinz, Steven F.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, v5 n1 p168-75 Feb 1979
The effect of the sensory discriminability of targets from nontargets on depth of nontarget processing was examined. Depth of nontarget processing was measured by semantic overlap between targets and nontargets, reaction time, and nontarget recall. Depth of processing decreased as sensory discriminability increased, supporting multiple-loci theories of attention. (Author/GDC)
