Neural correlates of perceptual rivalry in the human brain.
The results suggest that frontoparietal areas play a central role in conscious perception, biasing the content of visual awareness toward abstract internal representations of visual scenes, rather than simply toward space. Expand
Reading Hidden Intentions in the Human Brain
It is demonstrated that during the delay, it is possible to decode from activity in medial and lateral regions of prefrontal cortex which of two tasks the subjects were covertly intending to perform, suggesting that covert goals can be represented by distributed patterns of activity in the prefrontal cortex, thereby providing a potential neural substrate for prospective memory. Expand
Nonlinear event‐related responses in fMRI
The theory and techniques upon which conclusions based on nonlinear system identification based on the use of Volterra series were based are described and the implications for experimental design and analysis are discussed. Expand
Predicting the orientation of invisible stimuli from activity in human primary visual cortex
It is shown that even at conventional resolutions it is possible to use fMRI to obtain a direct measure of orientation-selective processing in V1 and to successfully predict which one of two oriented stimuli a participant was viewing, even when masking rendered that stimulus invisible. Expand
A direct quantitative relationship between the functional properties of human and macaque V5
The data show previously unknown Dissociations between the functional properties of human V5 and other human motion-sensitive areas, thus predicting similar dissociations for the properties of single neurons in homologous areas of macaque cortex. Expand
Neuroimaging: Decoding mental states from brain activity in humans
This work has shown that it is possible to accurately decode a person's conscious experience based only on non-invasive measurements of their brain activity, and can also be extended to other types of mental state, such as covert attitudes and lie detection. Expand
Relating Introspective Accuracy to Individual Differences in Brain Structure
It is shown that introspective ability is correlated with gray matter volume in the anterior prefrontal cortex, a region that shows marked evolutionary development in humans, and this findings point to a focal neuroanatomical substrate for introspection ability, a substrate distinct from that supporting primary perception. Expand
The Role of Working Memory in Visual Selective Attention
Higher memory load resulted in greater interference effects on behavioral performance from the distractor faces, plus increased face-related activity in the visual cortex, which confirms a major role for working memory in the control of visual selective attention. Expand
Emergence of resting state networks in the preterm human brain
The results place the emergence of RSNs largely during the period of rapid neural growth in the third trimester of gestation, suggesting that they are formed before the acquisition of cognitive competencies in later childhood. Expand

It is proposed that inter-individual differences can be used as a source of information to link human behaviour and cognition to brain anatomy. Expand
