Abstract

We explored top-down modulation of spatial frequency (SF) processing. When auditory pre-cueing directed observers' attention to one of two 4-octaves (SF) apart plaid components observers tended to perceive the cued component, suggesting selective attention to the SF channel they expected to carry task relevant information. In agreement, pre-cueing had no effect with components often processed by the same channel (0.5-octaves apart). Further, effects of expectancy were greater than of uncertainty and were SF tuned. Combined our findings suggest top-down modulation of early, cortical, SF processing. We argue this could similarly explain the previously reported influences of categorisation on SF processing
