One of the most prominent experimental paradigms for investigating the deployment of attention over time is the Attentional Blink (AB). Although there is now a great deal known about it, computational modeling of the AB remains only lightly explored. This paper responds to this limitation by proposing a prototype neural network model of the blink. A central aspect of which is a realization of the concept of consolidation into working memory, which is at the heart of the majority of current explanations of the blink.
