OBJECTIVES Evidence from cortical electrophysiology and functional imaging converges on the view that visual spatial selective attention results in a facilitation of early sensory processing in visual cortical structures. Little is known, however, about the neural control processes that lead to this facilitation. The present study was aimed at further(More)
Attentional selection can be based on spatial locations, non-spatial stimulus features, or entire objects as integrated feature ensembles. Several studies reported attentional modulations in those regions that process the constituent features of the presented stimuli. Here we employed functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to directly compare the(More)
The detection of novel events and their identification is a basic prerequisite in a rapidly changing environment. Recently, the processing of novelty has been shown to rely on the hippocampus and to be associated with activity in reward-related areas. The present study investigated the influence of spatial attention on neural processing of novel relative to(More)
potentials (ERPs) have revealed an ERP component called ‘N2pc’ (180–280 ms) that reflects the focusing of attention onto potential target items in the search array. The present study was designed to localize the neuroanatomical sources of this component by means of magnetoencephalographic (MEG) recordings, which provide greater spatial precision than ERP(More)
