Perception and behaviour depend not only on the stimulation transduced at our various sensory epithelia, but also on which aspects of this stimulation are attended. 'Selective attention' is the generic term for those processes that enable selective processing of incoming sensory stimuli, so that information relevant to our current goals, or stimulation that has intrinsic salience or biological significance, gets processed more thoroughly than other competing information. This chapter focuses on spatial aspects of endogenous (voluntary) selective attention and their implications for integration and interactions between different senses.
