This study aims to find out whether it is possible to decrease the magnitude of the attentional blink (AB) by training on another task to test if cognitive strategies play a role in the processing of sequentially presented visual stimuli. Many models of the AB point to structural limitations as the cause for the phenomenon, either in memory consolidation processes or in executive control functions. That such an explanation might be problematic was shown by Choi et al., who showed that the attentional blink can be trained away using a color-salient training task. In the current study two different training tasks, based on the PRIMs model by Taatgen et al., are tested to see whether strategic difficulties are at the base of the AB. The results of the study did not provide any evidence that support a strategy-based approach. A few problems with the strategy-based approach will be discussed and a new training task is proposed in order to eliminate the flaws that this design showed.
