Selective temporal attention enhances the temporal resolution of visual perception: Evidence from a temporal order judgment task.
Correa A., Sanabria D., Spence C., Tudela P., Lupiáñez J.
We investigated whether attending to a particular point in time affects temporal resolution in a task in which participants judged which of two visual stimuli had been presented first. The results showed that temporal resolution can be improved by attending to the relevant moment as indicated by the temporal cue. This novel finding is discussed in terms of the differential effects of spatial and temporal attention on temporal resolution.
