Behavioral and neural evidence suggests that attention selects entire objects, amplifying all of their features regardless of task relevance. A new magnetoencephalography (MEG) study by Schoenfeld et al. elucidates the time course of this selection, showing that object features are activated sequentially, with attention spreading from task-relevant to task-irrelevant modules.
