Three experiments tested young adults' abilities to use size and location cues to find and identify a target letter in a visual field containing 8 to 12 letters. Location cues (relatively near to or far from the fovea) and size cues (relatively large or small) were given before the display. Compared with response times on neutral, no-cue trials, location and size cues produced independent cost and benefit effects. The best fitting quantitative models allow attentional resources to be distributed in ringlike areas varying in distance from the fixation point, within which further selection of items by their relative size is possible.
