Attention Capture by Faces, and Human Bodies

Auther : Tarik N. Mohamed Esraa F. Shams

Four Experiments were conducted to examine if bodies capture attention similar to faces. A visual search paradigm was adopted from Langeton et al. (2008) study. Faces and bodies were presented upright (Exp.1a) or inverted (Exp1b). Participants were instructed to respond to the presence of butterflies, while face or body stimuli presented as one of the distractors. In Experiments (2ab) participants were instructed to respond to either face or body targets respectively, while butterfly presented as one of the distractors. Results showed that attentional capture phenomena not only related to faces but also extend to bodies, but this advantage was totally vanished when the target was present. Results of Experiment 2a  b show advantages of attentional capture of butterflies stimuli when face or body targets are absent. These findings showed that there are features in common between faces and bodies. Faces and bodies capture attention, and have a classification advantages.
Key words: Keywords: Visual search paradigm, Face, Body, Attention Capture.
