    Bao Yan;Hu Kesong;Xiao Xiaoxi
    2006, 14 (02):  204. 
    Abstract ( 1546 )   PDF (420KB) ( 2095 )  

    Inhibition of Return refers to the delayed response times to targets presented at the previously attended locations or objects as compared to the novel ones. It has been considered as a mechanism that biases attention towards novel locations in the visual field so as to facilitate visual searching efficiency. Since mid-1990’s, more and more studies in this field have focused on exploring the capacity of inhibition of return, i.e., how many previously cued locations can be inhibited by this mechanism. This article provides an overall review on the studies of inhibition of return at multiple locations with two major research paradigms -- the sequential cueing and simultaneous cueing paradigms. It summarizes the achievements as well as the characteristics and problems in this field and points out the possible direction for future research

    Mechanisms of Distractor Filtering in Preview Search
    Lei Xuejun;Jin Zhicheng
    2006, 14 (02):  210. 
    Abstract ( 1937 )   PDF (425KB) ( 1536 )  
    Search can be facilitated by presenting one set of distractors before the second set of distractors and the target: the preview effect. The underlying mechanisms allowing the search to be restricted to the new objects were primarily explored in this preview search paradigm. A few theories had been postulated, such as the active inhibition account, the abrupt onset account, and the temporal segregation account. These theories emphasized different aspects of the phenomenon, however, any single mechanism failed to explain all phenomena. This article proposed that the future research should integrate all the existent experimental phenomena and theories, further investigate the roles of old and new objects in preview search, and mainly coordinate the active inhibition account with the abrupt onset account, which might be two sides in a continuum

There were many similarities between them, but there existed some difference in essence. Across-cultural psychology ameliorated scientist psychology on condition that didn’t negate its basic principles or presumptions, but cultural psychology was antithesis to it, which denied the hard-core of scientist psychology from its foundation.
