The {{BLP sources}} template is a red flag that this article is not ready for GA. Sifting through it appears that is the case. Some specifics:

  • Heavily lacking in sources. This is a biography on a living person, so it is especially important to make it well-sourced. Claims like This theory was criticized because ... and In 1967 ... she published [a paper] that was central to the development of selective attention as a field of study sound likely to be challenged and must be verifiable. Nothing immediately appeared to me to sound libelous, as in such case the claim in question should be removed for legal reasons.
  • The Feature Integration Theory section may not meet the Wikipedia layout guideline. The sections therein should be done using sectioning markup per MOS:SECTION. The heading should not be wikilinked but a {{main}} template should instead be used – although the linked article does not exist anyway.
  • The article may need more links to help integrate it with other articles and the project as a whole.
  • Some images or illustrations would be helpful to make the article more appealing. Is there a free picture of her? How about something to help illustrate the Feature Integration Theory?

I have not read through the whole article as it's clear it does not meet GA criteria. I recommend the nominator read over the policy regarding biographies of living persons, and WP:GA? for more about good article criteria. You may also be able to find help at Wikipedia:WikiProject Women scientists.
