This would count as evidence of “attention to the red dot” (rather than to the green dot) in the sense of the selection of information. On the other hand, if both dots were followed by other items and the dots now play the role of cues, the observers trying to report these items may, when instructed to “attend to red,” perceive the item that follows the red dot better than the one that follows the green dot.

The multimodal prior entry effect reported by Spence, Shore, and Klein (2001). Attention was endogenously allocated to either vision (V) or touch (T) by a probability manipulation (whether unimodal trials were all visual [VV], all touch [TT]) or divided between the modalities (unimodal trials were 1/2 VV and 1/2 TT). Using a spatial response that was orthogonal to the attended dimension (modality), participants reported whether the stimulus presented from the left or right side of space had been presented first.
