Introduction: Toward a Theory of Attention that Includes Effortless Attention

In Effortless Attention: A New Perspective in the Cognitive Science of Attention and Action. MIT Press (2010)
Abstract
In this Introduction, I identify seven discrete aspects of attention brought to the fore by by considering the phenomenon of effortless attention: effort, decision-making, action syntax, agency, automaticity, expertise, and mental training. For each, I provide an overview of recent research, identify challenges to or gaps in current attention theory with respect to it, consider how attention theory can be advanced by including current research, and explain how relevant chapters of this volume offer such advances.
