Attention and feature integration in the feature inheritance effect

Features of neighboring elements are not processed independently. Often, it is assumed that nearby features are integrated by a (pre-attentive) pooling mechanism. Here, we show that in the feature inheritance effect some features are integrated across space whereas others are not. This result may be partly explained by a very focused spatial attention. Our findings challenge models based on a simple pooling mechanism.
