Unconscious priming eliminates automatic binding of colour and alphanumeric form in synaesthesia
TLDR
It is concluded that automatic binding of colour and alphanumeric form in synaesthesia arises after initial processes of letter and digit recognition are complete and that synaesthetic experiences can be prevented despite substantial processing of the sensory stimuli that otherwise trigger them.
Executive “Brake Failure” following Deactivation of Human Frontal Lobe
TLDR
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, it is found that temporary deactivation of the pars opercularis in the right inferior frontal gyrus selectively impairs the ability to stop an initiated action.
Phasic alerting of neglect patients overcomes their spatial deficit in visual awareness
TLDR
Evidence is provided that phasically increasing the patients' alertness should temporarily ameliorate their spatial bias in awareness, and nonspatial phasic alerting can overcome disabling spatial biases in perceptual awareness after brain injury.
Amygdala Responses to Fearful and Happy Facial Expressions under Conditions of Binocular Suppression
TLDR
The phenomenon of binocular rivalry is exploited to induce complete suppression of affective face stimuli presented to one eye to suggest that the amygdala has a limited capacity to differentiate between specific facial expressions when it must rely on information received via a subcortical route.
