Reply to the ability of the sweeping model to explain human attention

Journal of Mind and Behavior 14 (3):215-222 (1993)
This is a reply to Weinfurt's article examining the Sweeping Model. Overall, our positions are not as incompatible as they may seem, although I feel that his conclusion, that the Sweeping Model cannot explain human attention, does not follow from his comments. I will proceed through his article and clarify issues as they arise. Our difference of opinion may result from differing goals, with Weinfurt being concerned with more abstract aspects of cognition, and myself with basic perception and how it may be achieved before proceeding to the more abstract
