Decomposing Value-Driven Attention Grant uri icon


  • Brian A. Anderson, Ph.D., Texas A&M University, will follow up on prior research in which he identified a phenomenon called value-driven attention, which has implications for understanding and treating drug addictions. Value-driven attention refers to the tendency to turn one’s attention to a stimulus that has previously come with a reward, despite attempts to ignore it. Dr. Anderson seeks to better distinguish among learned factors that give rise to such attentional biases, and connect them to specific processes in the brain.
