Effects of Attention and Emotion on Face Processing in the Human Brain An Event-Related fMRI Study
We used event-related fMRI to assess whether brain responses to fearful versus neutral faces are modulated by spatial attention. Subjects performed a demanding matching task for pairs of stimuli atExpand
Gaze Perception Triggers Reflexive Visuospatial Orienting
This paper seeks to bring together two previously separate research traditions: research on spatial orienting within the visual cueing paradigm and research into social cognition, addressing ourExpand
Shifting visual attention between objects and locations: evidence from normal and parietal lesion subjects.
Space- and object-based attention components were examined in neurologically normal and parietal-lesion subjects, who detected a luminance change at 1 of 4 ends of 2 outline rectangles. One rectangleExpand
Distinct spatial frequency sensitivities for processing faces and emotional expressions
High and low spatial frequency information in visual images is processed by distinct neural channels. Using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in humans, we show dissociableExpand
Morphing Marilyn into Maggie dissociates physical and identity face representations in the brain
How the brain represents different aspects of faces remains controversial. Here we presented subjects with stimuli drawn from morph continua between pairs of famous faces. In the pairedExpand
Audiovisual links in exogenous covert spatial orienting
Subjects judged the elevation (up vs. down, regardless of laterality) of peripheral auditory or visual targets, following uninformative cues on either side with an intermediate elevation. JudgmentsExpand
Multisensory Interplay Reveals Crossmodal Influences on ‘Sensory-Specific’ Brain Regions, Neural Responses, and Judgments
Although much traditional sensory research has studied each sensory modality in isolation, there has been a recent explosion of interest in causal interplay between different senses. VariousExpand
Distant influences of amygdala lesion on visual cortical activation during emotional face processing
Emotional visual stimuli evoke enhanced responses in the visual cortex. To test whether this reflects modulatory influences from the amygdala on sensory processing, we used event-related functionalExpand

Research on attention is concerned with selective processing of incoming sensory information. To some extent, our awareness of the world depends on what we choose to attend, not merely on theExpand
Multiple levels of visual object constancy revealed by event-related fMRI of repetition priming
We conducted two event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) experiments to investigate the neural substrates of visual object recognition in humans. We used a repetition-primingExpand
