This paper describes a computational model of the Attentional Blink constructed using the dual-stage model proposed by  and also incorporating a token based account of working memory . This model reproduces data from a number of blink paradigms and makes predictions that lag-1 sparing is temporal and not sequential in origin. A further prediction is that enhancing the distinctiveness of T2 can impair T1 performance and also provoke order inversions of T1 and T2. Experiments from our lab examined the validity of these predictions. Implications and results are discussed.
