21–41, 2007. G. Taylor cortical sites, such as in occipital cortex for vision or the planum temporale for audition. However the resulting model does not have any selection occurring of only the attended part of the world. It contains everything on view, so to speak. This is cut down to a manageable size by the filtering process of attention which, by some suitable threshold process or otherwise, only allows a suitably coded representation of the attended component to arise in a separate (set of) neural modules than that holding the whole world.

The Role of Attention in Creating a Cognitive System 29 Fig. 3. The Elements of Reasoning. These are composed of the internal model pairs composed of a forward model (FM), suggested as in the parietal lobe (PL) and an inverse model controller (the topmost module in the figure). The former of these is used in training both models of the pair, by means of the error of the predicted and actual state of the system at a given time. These elements are dicsusssed in the text. Whilst the mechanisms supported by the FM/IMC pair of figure 3 are sufficient to perform this no attention has been included.

Such a model of attention processing is well supported by experimental data such as that arising from the attentional blink (1). In this paradigm two targets, denoted T1 and T2 (such as letter stimuli) are shown to a subject in a rapid stream of other stimuli such as digits. If the time lapse between T1 and T2 is about 300 milliseconds then there is greatest difficulty for the subject to detect T2: this time is the ‘attentional blink’. At the height of the attentional blink there is activity recorded associated with T2 coded even up to semantic level, but there is no awareness of T2 in the blink (Vogel et al, 1998).
