Remy publishes paper on decoding working memory using attentional biases

Remy’s paper entitled ‘Behavioral decoding of working memory items inside and outside the focus of attention’ is currently in press at the Annals of the New York Academy of the Sciences. His study looks at how people hold multiple items in working memory and the behavioral consequences of focusing attention on a subset of those items. He used a behavioral decoding method to show that attention is biased towards memory items that receive focused attention but not to memory items outside the focus of attention.
