Modulations of early somatosensory ERP components by transient and sustained spatial attention
Abstract.To investigate when and how spatial attention affects somatosensory processing, event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were recorded in response to mechanical tactile stimuli delivered to theExpand

The attentional selection of spatial and non-spatial attributes in touch: ERP evidence for parallel and independent processes
To investigate the functional relationship between spatial and non-spatial attentional selectivity in somatosensory processing, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded to mechanical tactileExpand

Covert manual response preparation triggers attentional shifts: ERP evidence for the premotor theory of attention
The premotor theory of attention claims that the preparation of goal-directed action and shifts of attention are closely linked, because they are controlled by shared sensorymotor mechanisms. UntilExpand

The spatial distribution of attentional selectivity in touch: evidence from somatosensory ERP components
OBJECTIVE Somatosensory event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were measured to investigate the spatial distribution of selective attention in touch, and whether the focus of tactile attention can beExpand

Redundant target effect and intersensory facilitation from visual-tactile interactions in simple reaction time
In a simple reaction time (RT) task, normal observers responded faster to simultaneous visual and tactile stimuli than to single visual or tactile stimuli. RT to simultaneous visual and tactileExpand

Covert attention in touch: behavioral and ERP evidence for costs and benefits.
To investigate the mechanism underlying tactile spatial attention, reaction times (RTs) and event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded in response to mechanical stimuli delivered to the hands. AtExpand

Anterior and posterior attentional control systems use different spatial reference frames: ERP evidence from covert tactile-spatial orienting.
To investigate whether processes controlling preparatory covert shifts of spatial attention operate within external and anatomically defined spatial coordinates, lateralized event-related potentialsExpand

Cutaneous saltation within and across arms: A new measure of the saltation illusion in somatosensation
A new objective procedure was used to measure the strength of cutaneous saltation, in order to clarify current debates about the nature of this illusion. Three taps were presented successively toExpand

Effects of hand posture on preparatory control processes and sensory modulations in tactile-spatial attention
OBJECTIVE Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were measured to investigate spatial coordinate systems involved in the control of preparatory tactile-spatial orienting, and in subsequent attentionalExpand

To Blink or Not to Blink: Fine Cognitive Tuning of the Defensive Peripersonal Space
The blink reflex elicited by the electrical stimulation of the median nerve at the wrist [hand blink reflex (HBR)] is a subcortical, defensive response that is enhanced when the stimulated hand isExpand
