Understanding Diverse Effects of Visual Attention with the VAP-Filters Metaphor

Consciousness and Cognition 6 (2-3):348-362 (1997)
The Variable and Permeable Filters metaphor is presented with an explanation of its advantages over other popular metaphors in accounting for attention effects in many different research paradigms. Research from laboratories of the author and others are discussed briefly and shown to result in diverse facilitatory and inhibitory attention effects on visual perception. All of these effects are consistent with the VAP-Filters metaphor
