Attention is one of the most explored topics in psychology while still not being well understood. A major breakthrough of attention research at the level of mechanisms, however, has been achieved by single cell recordings which has lead to a number of powerful neuro-computational models. One of the main future questions is to bridge the gap from those mechanisms to the rich data in psychology in psychophysics. I will start at the level of neuro-computational models of attention, explain the fundamental mechanisms and then pave the way how such models can provide insight to understand different perceptual phenomena.
