Multiple object tracking (MOT), a wildly used paradigm, offers an opportunity to analyze the attention processes in dynamic context. Endogenous cuing and exogenous cuing could be separated by the difference of processing time span during target acquisition (TA) phase. The location and feature argument between the Object File Theory and the Visual Index Theory was well investigated by juggling variant and trajectory variant, which either alternated the features of objects within a trail or fixed trajectory of targets, distractors, or both of them. However researches on cognitive resource allowance and strategy has not been fully discussed at now.

Key words: multiple object tracking (MOT), attention cue, trajectory
