The Cross Model Effect of Attention on Preferences

Directing attention towards a particular direction in one sensory mode (e.g. audio) will increase the ease with which objects placed in that direction are processed even in other sensory modes (e.g. visual), thereby enhancing preferences for such objects. However, this effect reverses if the sound is negatively-valenced.
