Visual attention requires information to be processed in many different parts of the brain. To see an image, the brain must convert information both the right and the left eyes and then create a steady image. This becomes a more complicated process when you purposely direct your visual attention and search for a stimulus (signal) in your environment. View the Field of Vision Simulation to see an example of objects move into and out of our range of vision.
Which parts of the brain are involved with perceiving the flying image in the Field of Vision Simulation? Explain the difference between non-spatial and spatial attentional processing. Which type of processing does the media example show and why?
