These studies suggest that reflexive attention contributes to our ability to quickly evaluate new and potentially interesting stimuli by enhancing sensory processing. Our findings support the idea that visual information processing can be modulated as early as the extrastriate visual cortex in humans by means of reflexive attentional mechanisms. The enhancement of the P1 at the short cue-totarget ISis was observed in both difficult discrimination and simple detection tasks. Furthermore, in recent studies not reviewed here, we found enhancements of the P 1 component for stimuli that were completely task-irrelevant and for which no overt response was required (Hopfinger, Maxwell, & Mangun, 2000), suggesting that the early sensory enhancement is a strongly automatic process.
