Cognitive control mechanisms resolve conflict through cortical amplification of task-relevant information
A prominent model of how the brain regulates attention proposes that the anterior cingulate cortex monitors the occurrence of conflict between incompatible response tendencies and signals thisExpand

The neural correlates and functional integration of cognitive control in a Stroop task
TLDR
We collected event-related fMRI data on a color-word naming Stroop task and found distinct fronto-parietal networks of current trial conflict detection and conflict adaptation through cognitive control. Expand

fMRI Evidence for Cortical Modification during Learning of Mandarin Lexical Tone
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was employed before and after six native English speakers completed lexical tone training as part of a program to learn Mandarin as a second language.Expand

Intentional false responding shares neural substrates with response conflict and cognitive control
TLDR
The ability to deceive others is a high-level social and cognitive function. Expand

Neural Integration of Top-Down Spatial and Feature-Based Information in Visual Search
Visual search is aided by previous knowledge regarding distinguishing features and probable locations of a sought-after target. However, how the human brain represents and integrates concurrentExpand

Separate conflict-specific cognitive control mechanisms in the human brain
TLDR
We propose a non-centralized, modular architecture of cognitive control, where separate control resources operate in parallel, and are recruited in a context-sensitive manner. Expand

Neural Dynamics of Rejection Sensitivity
TLDR
We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to explore whether individual differences in RS are mediated by differential recruitment of brain regions involved in emotional appraisal and/or cognitive control. Expand

The spatial resolution capacity of human foveal retina
An image on the retina of a human eye enters the visual system through an array of photoreceptors that sets the boundaries on the spatial detail available for neural representation. In order toExpand

The dorsal medial frontal cortex is sensitive to time on task, not response conflict or error likelihood
TLDR
The dorsal medial frontal cortex (dMFC), including the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex and the supplementary motor area, is highly active during choice behavior, even when no decisions are made. Expand

Detection of time-varying signals in event-related fMRI designs
TLDR
In neuroimaging research on attention, cognitive control, decision-making, and other areas where response time (RT) is a critical variable, the temporal variability associated with the decision is often assumed to be inconsequential to the hemodynamic response (HDR). Expand
