Abstract(in English) In an inefficient search, the search for a target becomes faster with a repeated configuration when compared with a newly generated configuration. This facilitatory effect is termed contextual cueing, and suggests that an association between a target location and a distractor configuration is encoded in memory and this association can be used as a cue in visual search. In this study, we examined the effects of selective attention to search items and retrieval cues of the context information on visual search. The results showed that contextual cueing was observed only when the configuration of the attended items was fixed. However, the facilitatory effect was observed regardless of attention to the search items when the place folder was presented as a cue before the presentation of the search array. These results suggest that selective attention affects the immediate use of the context, but not the use of the context itself.
