AbstractPerceptual load is known to influence the locus of attentional selection in the brain but through an unknown underlying mechanism. We used event-related potentials (ERPs) to investigate how perceptual load interacts with cue-driven involuntary attention. Perceptual load was manipulated in a line orientation discrimination task in which target location was cued involuntarily by means of peripheral cues. Attentional modulation was observed for P1m (the posterior midline P1 component with peak latency between 108 and 140 ms) with invalid trials eliciting larger P1m than valid trials. This attentional effect on P1m increased as a function of perceptual load, suggesting an early temporal locus for the interaction of perceptual load and involuntary attention. Attentional modulation for the C1 component (peak latency at approximately 80 ms) was also observed, but only for high-load stimuli that were presented intermixed with low-load stimuli. Results suggest that (a) perceptual load affects attentional selection at early processing stages; (b) perceptual load interacts with involuntary attention earlier and with different brain mechanisms relative to voluntary attention: and (c) attentional modulation in the C1 time range is possible under optimal experimental conditions.; Perceptual load is known to influence the locus of attentional selection in the brain but through an unknown underlying mechanism.
