Imagine you are in love and the memory of your beloved is constantly active in your thoughts. Your task requires that you focus attention on your computer screen; despite it being detrimental to the task, you cannot avoid attending to the picture of your loved one placed on the desk nearby. This example shows how the contents of working memory (WM) can capture visual attention. The aim of the current study is to investigate the neural mechanisms that give rise to such phenomena.
