This chapter summarizes how visual attention is expressed across the different levels of the human processing system: from the single neuron over the anatomical network to the selective behaviour manifest on the psychological scale. It argues that the equations of the theory of visual attention (TVA) provide a unifying framework for the whole field of visual-attention research and points to further extensions of the theory into the psychological domains of memory, executive functions, emotion, and consciousness.

Keywords:   visual attention, processing system, neuron
