Abstract

The authors Ruz and Lupiáñez are to be commended for a thorough overview of many of the key studies in the attention capture literature. In the present commentary we would like to suggest three lines along which future attention capture research might be broadened: (1) the role played by biologically relevant stimuli; (2) the role played by multisensory stimulation, and (c) the role played by consciousness.
