“It’S Cold in Here. I Need a Bowl of Soup to Warm Me Up!”: the Effects of Incidental Sensory Frames on Conflicting Sensory Inputs

However, when the attention is drawn to incidental cues, it triggers a motivation to think of the desirability of the focal object. The desirability increases only when there is a lack of it in the salient sensory frame.
