Reducing the Attentional Blink by Training: Testing Model Predictions Using EEG.


The attentional blink (AB; Raymond et al., 1992) is a phenomenon that captures people’s limited ability to process stimuli presented in quick succession. When a second target item (T2) in a stream of distracting items is presented 200-400ms after the first target (T1), the accuracy of reporting T2 will be decreased as compared to when T2 is presented outside of this time window.
