Call for Papers

Attention in Natural and Mediated Realities
Deadline: December 31, 2017

Modern humans live in natural environments and in worlds shaped and mediated by technology. Both worlds are complex, dynamic, and rich; producing streams of data that vastly outstrip the capacities of human cognitive systems. Yet, people usually understand and intelligently act in everyday situations. How do people use attention to manage environmental demands on human cognitive systems? The purpose of this collection of papers is to examine how attention operates in environments that approach the complexity of naturalistic situations. Papers may be empirical studies, theoretical or tutorial reviews, or new theoretical contributions. Studies using behavioural, neurophysiological, and/or eye-tracking methods would all be appropriate.

Issues of particular interest include: the role of attention in media consumption and education; change blindness and inattentional blindness in naturalistic settings; motivation, reward, and attention; curiosity; predictive looking in event comprehension. (This list is not exclusive.)
