A Computational Perspective on Visual Attention

This chapter, which examines how the Selective Tuning (ST) theory and model explain the understanding of visual attention in the brain, relying on scientific methods. It discusses earlier research works in the field of ST that have played a key role in making most of the predictions associated with the ST theory and model. One of those predictions involves single-neuron attentional effects being observed in all visual attention areas in the cortex region of the brain, where neural signals act jointly. Another essential consideration in visual attention involves the level of hypothetical assumptions and the scope of models developed for exploring this aspect of brain activity.

Keywords:   visual attention, research works, predictions, neural signals, hypothetical assumption
