Published: 27 April 2022
...José Monteagudo; Martin Egelhaaf; Jens Peter Lindemann ABSTRACT Flies are often observed to approach dark objects. To a naive observer they seem to pay selective attention to one out of several objects although previous research identified as a possible underlying mechanism a reflex-like fixation...

...Leonie Kirszenblat; Deniz Ertekin; Joseph Goodsell; Yanqiong Zhou; Paul J. Shaw; Bruno van Swinderen ABSTRACT Although sleep deprivation is known to impair attention in humans and other mammals, the underlying reasons are not well understood, and whether similar effects are present in non-mammalian...

... how males selectively direct their attention to make these assessments. Using Indian peafowl ( Pavo cristatus ) as a model system, we examined how males visually assess their competitors by continuously tracking the gaze of freely moving peacocks during the mating season. When assessing rivals...

... defocused images of clutter do not mask perception of focused images for targets. Neural response synchronization may select a target to be the focus of attention, while desynchronization may impose inattention on the surroundings by defocusing perception of clutter. The formation of focused biosonar images...

... selection may favor attention mechanisms allowing the choosing females to selectively and efficiently acquire relevant information from complex male display traits and, in turn, may favor male display traits that effectively capture and hold female attention. Using a miniaturized telemetric gaze-tracker, we...

... to perform matched tests to compare the ways fish and humans scan stationary visual scenes. In humans, visual search is seen as a doorway to cortical mechanisms of how attention is allocated. Fish lack a cortex and we therefore wondered whether archerfish would differ from humans in how they scan...

...Linde Morawetz; Johannes Spaethe SUMMARY Mechanisms of spatial attention are used when the amount of gathered information exceeds processing capacity. Such mechanisms have been proposed in bees, but have not yet been experimentally demonstrated. We provide evidence that selective attention...

Published: 15 March 2006
...Johannes Spaethe; Jürgen Tautz; Lars Chittka SUMMARY In humans, visual search tasks are commonly used to address the question of how visual attention is allocated in a specific task and how individuals search for a specific object (`target') among other objects (`distractors')that vary in number...
