Abstract:

The dependency of word processing on spare attentional resources has been debated for several decades. Recent research in the study of selective attention has emphasized the role of task load in determining the fate of ignored information. In parallel to behavioral evidence, neuroimaging data show that the activation generated by unattended stimuli is eliminated in task-relevant brain regions during high attentional load tasks. We conducted an fMRI experiment to explore how word encoding proc...
