  1. Peter M. Milner (2001). Magical Attention. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):131-131.
    Cowan postulates that the capacity of short-term memory is limited to the number of items to which attention can be simultaneously directed. Unfortunately, he endows attention with unexplained properties, such as being able to locate the most recent inputs to short-term memory, so his theory does little more than restate the data.

  2. Peter M. Milner (1999). The Autonomous Brain: A Neural Theory of Attention and Learning. L. Erlbaum Associates.
    The thesis of this bk is that the brain is innately constructed to initiate behaviors likely to promote the survival of the species & to sensitize sensory systems to stimuli required for those behaviors. Intended for behavioral & brain scientists.

  3. Peter M. Milner (1997). Repetition Priming: Memory or Attention? Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):623-623.
    There is no general agreement as to the meaning of long-term potentiation, but this cannot be resolved by using it to explain additional phenomena. Increased attention to recently experienced stimuli is a form of learning known to neuropsychologists as repetition priming. As more is learned about the neurochemistry of synaptic change, the term LTP will wither.
