Psychology Departmental Seminar: 'The unified model of vision and attention'

According to the unified model of vision and attention, encoding of landmark information by the dorsal visual stream elicits rapid, non-conscious, exogenous orienting towards useful visual locations.

In contrast, encoding of symbolic information by the ventral visual stream is believed to elicit a slower form of orienting, often termed endogenous. Hence, the model proposes a simple mapping between two-mechanism theories of attention-shifting and dual stream models of vision.

After introducing the unified model of vision and attention, three sources of supporting evidence will be described.

In addition, recent evidence suggesting that the model requires revision will be described, and potential applications of our approach will be discussed.
