Effects of Stimulus Categories on the Attentional Blink
Abstract: This study investigated the effects on Attentional Blink (AB) when the category relationships of two targets in a rapid serial visual presentation stream were consistent or not. In experiment 1, accuracy for the second target (T2) increased when its color was changed, but there was still a sig-nificant Attentional Blink effect. In experiment 2, the results for T2 showed that there was no sig-nificant Attentional Blink effect when T1 and T2 belong to the different categories. These findings support the hypothesis that AB is due to an allocation of limited attentional resources. But whether the AB effects come into being or not is deteminated by the relationships of category between T1 and T2.
