The host for this talk is Dr Paul Bays

The premotor theory of attention argues that covert, visuo-spatial attention depends on motor programs. My talk explores associations and dissociations between covert attention and oculomotor control to argue that premotor theory is true only for reflexive ‘exogenous’ shifts of attention.
