An integrative theory of prefrontal cortex function.
The prefrontal cortex has long been suspected to play an important role in cognitive control, in the ability to orchestrate thought and action in accordance with internal goals. Its neural basis,Expand

THE PREFRONTAL CORTEX AND COGNITIVE CONTROL
One of the enduring mysteries of brain function concerns the process of cognitive control. How does complex and seemingly wilful behaviour emerge from interactions between millions of neurons? ThisExpand

Response to Comment on "Top-Down Versus Bottom-Up Control of Attention in the Prefrontal and Posterior Parietal Cortices"
We reported latencies for target selection based on the earliest neurons to show effects, which Schall et al. mistakenly compare to latencies based on population averages. We show that there areExpand

The importance of mixed selectivity in complex cognitive tasks
TLDR
We analysed the neural activity recorded in monkeys during an object sequence memory task to identify a role of mixed selectivity in subserving the cognitive functions ascribed to the PFC. Expand

A neural basis for visual search in inferior temporal cortex
TLDR
We show that neurons in inferior temporal cortex, an area known to be important for high-level visual processing, are involved in selecting the objects to which we attend and foveate. Expand

Categorical representation of visual stimuli in the primate prefrontal cortex.
The ability to group stimuli into meaningful categories is a fundamental cognitive process. To explore its neural basis, we trained monkeys to categorize computer-generated stimuli as "cats" andExpand

A Comparison of Primate Prefrontal and Inferior Temporal Cortices during Visual Categorization
Previous studies have suggested that both the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and inferior temporal cortex (ITC) are involved in high-level visual processing and categorization, but their respective rolesExpand

Integration of what and where in the primate prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
The visual system separates processing of an object's form and color ("what") from its spatial location ("where"). Expand

Top-Down Versus Bottom-Up Control of Attention in the Prefrontal and Posterior Parietal Cortices
Attention can be focused volitionally by “top-down” signals derived from task demands and automatically by “bottom-up” signals from salient stimuli. The frontal and parietal cortices are involved,Expand
