A Computational Perspective on Visual Attention

This chapter focuses on the role of the Selective Tuning (ST) model in addressing the computational and complexity issues involved in visual attention. The model plays a key role in determining the components involved in visual attention and in proposing a unifying approach to attention, recognition, and binding. The chapter finds that attention involves mechanisms which help to optimize and control the search processes involved in perception and cognition. Extension investigations have also revealed that attentional mechanisms enabling access to high spatial resolution data in the visual cortex region of the brain play a significant role in developing ST required for visual attention.

Keywords:   Selective Tuning, complexity, attention, attentional mechanism, visual attention
