Interactions between working memory and attention: An investigation of category-level effects and task demands.

I'm currently looking at how information kept active in working memory influences selective visual attention. At present there is support for the involuntary nature of working memory-guided attentional capture as well as the notion that working memory does not always guide attention in an involuntary fashion. My research will study this apparent contradiction in the visual attention literature.
