New Vision Research paper!

Zuzanna, Masih and Clay published their first paper together about the influence of attentional priority on the precision of spatial working memory. In two psychophysical experiments they manipulated priority in two ways: by changing the probability of being tested on memorized locations and by changing monetary rewards for correct recall. The paper also includes a [...]
