The Limits of Attention

Karen M. Arnell

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on examining cross-modal effects in dual-task temporal attention experiments. The evidence for specific sources of interference (such as within-modality processing) and general (central) sources of interference are examined in dual-task paradigms using continuous stimuli tasks (such as auditory shadowing), and more discrete stimuli and tasks (such as those found in the Psychological Refractory Period). Many temporal attention paradigms are discussed somewhat briefly, but the issue of modality-specific interference versus central (amodal) interference in the attentional blink paradigm is discussed in detail. Across paradigms, a general pattern emerges where both specific and general sources of interference can be seen to underlie the results of dual-task temporal attention paradigms.

Keywords:   dual-task interference, attentional blink, cross-modal effects, stimuli tasks, temporal attention, Psychological Refractory Period
