IQs Reading: Chun et al's taxonomy of human attention

Click on image to enlarge

I just finished my first read of Chun et al.'s thought provoking article that suggests and interesting external/internal taxonomy of human attention. All my comments are embedded in the article as per the IQ's Reading feature of IQ's Corner.

A very thought provoking article that ties together a wide array of research on attention, working memory (attentional control), the importance of brain network synchrony (esp. the P-FIT model of Haeir et al), etc.

Worth the read. I particular like the treatment of working memory as more an attentional control mechanism and the treatment of cognitive control and top-down vs bottom-up attention.
