The Influence of Concentrative Meditation Training on the Development of Attention Networks during Early Adolescence
We investigate if concentrative meditation training (CMT) offered during adolescent development benefits subsystems of attention using a quasi-experimental design. Attentional alerting, orienting,Expand

Working memory as internal attention: Toward an integrative account of internal and external selection processes
Working memory (WM) and attention have been studied as separate cognitive constructs, although it has long been acknowledged that attention plays an important role in controlling the activation,Expand

Reaffirming the Sensory Recruitment Account of Working Memory
of visual information that was initially processed in the conventional visual system. Sensory recruitment, by contrast, provides a parsimonious model of VWM storage, as it decreases redundancy inExpand

Center-Surround Inhibition in Working Memory
Directing visual attention toward a particular feature or location in the environment suppresses processing of nearby stimuli [1-4]. Echoing the center-surround organization of retinal ganglion cellExpand

Working-memory-triggered dynamic adjustments in cognitive control.
Dynamic adjustments in cognitive control are well documented in conflict tasks, wherein competition from irrelevant stimulus attributes intensifies selection demands and leads to subsequentExpand

Cognitive control over working memory biases of selection
Across many studies, researchers have found that representations in working memory (WM) can guide visual attention toward items that match the features of the WM contents. While some researchers haveExpand

The Working Memory Stroop Effect: When Internal Representations Clash With External Stimuli
Working memory (WM) has recently been described as internally directed attention, which implies that WM content should affect behavior exactly like an externally perceived and attended stimulus. WeExpand

A Parieto-Medial Temporal Pathway for the Strategic Control over Working Memory Biases in Human Visual Attention
The contents of working memory (WM) can both aid and disrupt the goal-directed allocation of visual attention. WM benefits attention when its contents overlap with goal-relevant stimulus features,Expand

Neural Representation of Working Memory Content Is Modulated by Visual Attentional Demand
Recent theories assert that visual working memory (WM) relies on the same attentional resources and sensory substrates as visual attention to external stimuli. Behavioral studies have observedExpand

We Need a Taxonomy of Working Memory
A vast and diverse literature describes the relationship between working memory and attention. That literature encompasses tests of the interactions between the two functions, comparisons of theExpand
