Abstract : This thesis project is a method of measuring the modulation transfer function of spatial visual attention. When the assumptions of this method of measuring attention are satisfied, the method enables one to calculate, for any attentional demand whatsoever, the extent to which an observer could mould his or her distribution of spatial attention to meet the demand. This research is being reported at ARVO, 1997, and a preliminary report is attached herewith.
