Abstract

This paper investigates how emotional salience modulates Barnard et al's key-distractor attentional blink task, enabling us to elucidate the temporal dynamics of attentional capture by emotional stimuli. The research is framed within the context of Barnard's Interacting Cognitive Subsystems (ICS) Architecture. Specifically, we provide a computational model of attentional capture and emotional salience in terms of the interaction between the Implicational, Propositional and Body-State Subsystems that ICS proposes.
