About time: modelling dynamic voluntary attention

Nir Shalev, Freek van Ede

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Goal-directed behaviour requires flexible prioritisation of relevant sensations in space and time. A recent paper by Denison et al. brings time into a canonical model of voluntary selective attention. We reflect on this breakthrough and consider the opportunities it offers for future research on the dynamic fabric of mind.
