  • 1 March 2001
Five important trends have emerged from recent work on computational models of focal visual attention that emphasize the bottom-up, image-based control of attentional deployment. First, theExpand

A saliency-based search mechanism for overt and covert shifts of visual attention
Most models of visual search, whether involving overt eye movements or covert shifts of attention, are based on the concept of a saliency map, that is, an explicit two-dimensional map that encodesExpand

Shifts in selective visual attention: towards the underlying neural circuitry.
We propose a simple network of neuron-like elements can account for a variety of phenomena associated with this shift of selective visual attention. Expand

The Secrets of Salient Object Segmentation
In this paper we provide an extensive evaluation of fixation prediction and salient object segmentation algorithms as well as statistics of major datasets. Expand

How random is the discharge pattern of cortical neurons? We examined recordings from primary visual cortex (V1; Knierim and Van Essen, 1992) and extrastriate cortex (MT; Newsome et al., 1989a) ofExpand

Modeling attention to salient proto-objects
We propose a biologically plausible model of forming and attending to proto-objects in natural scenes that can enable a model of object recognition in cortex to expand from recognizing individual objects in isolation to sequentially recognizing all objects in a complex scene. Expand

An anatomically comprehensive atlas of the adult human brain transcriptome
Neuroanatomically precise, genome-wide maps of transcript distributions are critical resources to complement genomic sequence data and to correlate functional and genetic brain architecture. Here weExpand
