Abstract
Previously, we have used visual search (Cavanagh, Labianca, Thornton, 2000) and dualtask (Thornton, Rensink, Shiffrar, in press) methodologies to assess the role of attention during biological motion processing. Here, we continue this line of work by using a modified Eriksen interference paradigm (Eriksen Eriksen, 1974) to explore the impact of taskirrelevant flanking figures on direction discrimination decisions directed at a centrally attended target walker.
