An inhibition effect in the temporal constrains of attentional selection: The Backward Blink

Publication year: 2012 Source: Acta Psychologica, Volume 139, Issue 3, March 2012, Pages 501-506 Stefano Sdoia, Fabio Ferlazzo The study aims at investigating the dynamics of visual information processing during sequential control of attentional selection. By combining two different traditional paradigms we show for the first time that during rapid selection of visual targets, encoding of a new target stimulus is facilitated by suppression of the preceding relevant stimulus category (Backward Blink; BB).
