Where models of vision and attention have conventionally been separate entities, Lambert et al. (2017) presents an empirically derived model that unifies the two processes.

A significant difference in the C1 component of visua ERPs in parietal-occipital sites is larger for landmark cueing than discrimination tasks, indicating stronger early recruitment of the visual stream.

Our paper based on Dr. Nathan Ryckman’s PhD work has been accepted for publication! The article discusses the effects of thought suppression on imagined emotional events, and individual differences that play a roll in suppressive capabilities.
