New Paper!

Check out our new paper in Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics, entitled “Spatiotemporal competition and task-relevance shape the spatial distribution of emotional interference during rapid visual processing: Evidence from gaze-contingent eye-tracking”. In this paper, we used gaze-contingent eye-tracking and found evidence that emotion-induced blindness is spatially localized whether people are looking at the emotional distractors or not. This study was part of first author Briana Kennedy’s doctoral dissertation and was conducted in collaboration with Tom Beesley’s lab.
