  • Contrast discrimination, non-uniform patterns and change blindness 

    Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Orbach, H. S. (The Royal Society, 1998-11)
    Change blindness–our inability to detect large changes in natural scenes when saccades, blinks and other transients interrupt visual input–seems to contradict psychophysical evidence for our exquisite sensitivity to contrast ...
  • Divided attention selectively impairs memory for self-relevant information 

    Turk, David J.; Brady-van den Bos, Mirjam; Collard, Philip; Gillespie-Smith, Karri; Conway, Martin A.; Cunningham, Sheila J. (Springer-Verlag, 2013-05)
    Information that is relevant to oneself tends to be remembered more than information that relates to other people, but the role of attention in eliciting this “self-reference effect” is unclear. In the present study, we ...
  • A review of self-processing biases in cognition 

    Cunningham, Sheila J.; Turk, David J. (Taylor and Francis, 2017-01-06)
    When cues in the environment are associated with self (e.g., one’s own name, face, or coffee cup), these items trigger processing biases such as increased attentional focus, perceptual prioritization and memorial support. ...
  • Selfish learning: the impact of self-referential encoding on children's literacy attainment 

    Turk, David J.; Gillespie-Smith, Karri; Krigolson, Olave E.; Havard, Catriona; Conway, Martin A.; Cunningham, Sheila J. (Elsevier, 2015-08-27)
    Self-referencing (i.e., thinking about oneself during encoding) can increase attention toward to-be-encoded material, and support memory for information in adults and children. The current inquiry tested an educational ...
  • Using the principles of animation to predict allocation of attention 

    Sloan, Robin J. S.; Martinez, Santiago; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C. (Heriot-Watt University, 2012-04-18)
