According to these theories detecting a pop-out target Automatic Control of Visual Selection 29 does not require the involvement of focal attention. Contrary to this assumption, the study of Theeuwes et al. (2006) suggests that spatial attention—the gateway of visual selection is always necessary in order to respond to target. A response without directing spatial attention—that is without selection is not possible. Overt Selection Selection is “overt” when people not only covertly direct attention to a location in space but also make a subsequent eye movement to that location.

Theeuwes and Hagenzieker 1993). When a salient object or event is selected even when the observer tries to select something else one speaks of attentional capture (Theeuwes 2010b). When not only attention is captured but the event or object also triggers a subsequent saccade to its location one typically speaks of oculomotor capture (Theeuwes et al. 1998; Theeuwes et al. 1999). It is important to note that it is not trivial to deduce true attentional capture. Even though it seems reasonable to assume that a unique feature singleton (such as a red element in a display of green elements) captures attention in a purely bottom-up way, such a claim is not necessarily correct.
