New Paper!

Check out our new paper in the journal Cognition & Emotion! In this paper, entitled “Manipulations of distractor frequency do not mitigate emotion-induced blindness”, PhD student Jenna Zhao and Steve report that emotion-induced blindness remains undiminished even when people encounter emotional distractors with high frequency. This is consistent with our lab’s accumulating evidence that emotion-induced blindness is a particularly robust effect that is hard to “knock out”.
