The Spatial Resolution of Visual Attention.
Intriligator, James; Cavanaugh, Patrick
Cognitive Psychology, v43 n3 p171-216 Nov 2001
Used two tasks to evaluate the grain of visual attention, the minimum spacing at which attention can select individual items. Results for eight adults on a tracking task and five adults on an individuation task show that selection has a coarser grain than visual resolution and suggest that the parietal area is the most likely locus of the selection mechanism.
