This chapter examines the prior entry hypothesis and provides a brief review of the empirical literature investigating the effects of attention on multisensory temporal perception in humans. The findings suggest that most research has found convincing empirical evidence in support of the existence of the prior entry effect. The results also reveal that attention does indeed speed the relative latency of perceptual processing no matter the dimension or channel along which attention is oriented and no matter whether attention is directed in an endogenous or exogenous manner.
