CFP MLA 2013 -- The Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention
The Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention
We invite abstracts for a session focusing on the neuroscience of attention. How do recent developments in understanding perception and focus relate to research on reading processes? What do readers miss, what do they foreground and why? How do priming effects from marketing and commercialism, for example, direct attention? What do studies on lack of attention (e.g., ADHD) contribute to the discussion?
