    Cognition and Attention in Performance There has been a long history of attention within psychology for the last century. According to Posner (1994), the researcher William James stated, "Everyone knows what attention is, it is the taking possession by the mind in clear and vivid form of one out of what seem several simultaneous objects or trains of thought." Research shows that the “brain stem reticular formation was a necessity to maintain the alert state provided some anatomical reality to the

    Attention is a complex neural network in the brain that is compromised of alerting, orienting and executive control. Through rigorous research, it has been discovered that these components of attention are not all in the same area of the brain though. Neuroimaging studies have repeatedly supported these findings (Posner and Peterson, 1990). In 2002, Jin Fan invented a test known as the Attentional Network Test, or the ANT for short (Fan et al, 2005). This test gave researchers and scientists a new

    Visual Attention and Motion The human observer is quite efficient at detecting motion. If a target is detectable when still, it becomes even more so when it is in motion. The brain uses multiple cues to help us perceive motion including information from all of our senses. The focus of this paper will be the visual system and how motion is perceived visually. Motion is in part perceived by the changing patterns of light on the retina. This cannot account for total motion perception, however

    precious information. Of course, the news does not just make itself up; there are people responsible for this madness, people that are seeking attention. There are many, more logical methods of gaining attention such as designing an app or making a new discovery in science. Strangely it appears to me that now people are relying on their children for attention, by giving them outlandish names. Such names include but are certainly not limited to: Apple, Moses, Dweezil, Moon Unit, Diva Muffin, Poppy Honey

    Attention has been an increasingly tricky subject within psychology to investigate over the past few centuries, and as advancements have been made, so have the discoveries of more systems within attention itself.

    for the interference; although one is focusing attention on determining the color of the word, the unconscious recognition of the word is presented to consciousness and the relationship between the two stimuli distract the focus of attention. Thus, these top-down attention events effect conscious perception of stimuli. All of the aforementioned literature focuses on visual stimuli.
