So why this misinterpretation in analysing the two theories. I believe the problem stems from the fact that the two theories come from different areas of psychology, and consequently are couched in the different language and conceptualisations. Treisman is wholeheartedly a cognitive psychologist using the tricks of the trade (dichotic listening, shadowing, reaction times, memory tests) to tease out the way different units in the mind process information. Deutsch and Deutsch, on the other hand, are from the biological school (and I believe have never touched a pair of dichotic listening headphones in their lives). To use an artificial intelligence analogy, one could say that Treisman favours a traditional serial processing approach, whereas Deutsch and Deutsch are from the connectionist school of parallel distributed processing and neural networks. The difference is highlighted when one reads their original papers. Whereas Treisman is written in "information processing speak", Deutsch and Deutsch's language is in terms of organisms, behaviours and neurophysiology (in fact their original paper contains a substantial section on the neurophysiological evidence relevant to their ideas). It is an astonishing, and little known, fact that Deutsch and Deutsch original (1963) paper on attention contains neither the word "consciousness" nor the word "conscious".
