Predicting human gaze using low-level saliency combined with face detection
TLDR
A combined model of face detection and low-level saliency significantly outperforms a low- level model in predicting locations humans fixate on, based on eye-movement recordings of humans observing photographs of natural scenes, most of which contained at least one person. Expand

Faces and text attract gaze independent of the task: Experimental data and computer model.
Previous studies of eye gaze have shown that when looking at images containing human faces, observers tend to rapidly focus on the facial regions. But is this true of other high-level image featuresExpand

Latency and Selectivity of Single Neurons Indicate Hierarchical Processing in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe
Neurons in the temporal lobe of both monkeys and humans show selective responses to classes of visual stimuli and even to specific individuals. In this study, we investigate the latency andExpand

On-line, voluntary control of human temporal lobe neurons
TLDR
We demonstrate that humans can regulate the activity of their neurons in the medial temporal lobe (MTL) to alter the outcome of the contest between external images and their internal representation. Expand

A category-specific response to animals in the right human amygdala
The amygdala is important in emotion, but it remains unknown whether it is specialized for certain stimulus categories. We analyzed responses recorded from 489 single neurons in the amygdalae of 41Expand

Breathing above the brain stem: volitional control and attentional modulation in humans.
Whereas the neurophysiology of respiration has traditionally focused on automatic brain stem processes, higher brain mechanisms underlying the cognitive aspects of breathing are gaining increasingExpand

Responses of human medial temporal lobe neurons are modulated by stimulus repetition.
Recent studies have reported the presence of single neurons with strong responses to visual inputs in the human medial temporal lobe. Here we show how repeated stimulus presentation--photos ofExpand

First attention then intention
Attention is a critical construct for anyone involved in marketing. However, research on attention is currently lacking in the marketing discipline. This is perhaps due to inherent difficulties inExpand

Selectivity of pyramidal cells and interneurons in the human medial temporal lobe.
Neurons in the medial temporal lobe (MTL) respond selectively to pictures of specific individuals, objects, and places. However, the underlying mechanisms leading to such degree of stimulusExpand

Comparing social attention in autism and amygdala lesions: Effects of stimulus and task condition
The amygdala plays a critical role in orienting gaze and attention to socially salient stimuli. Previous work has demonstrated that SM a patient with rare bilateral amygdala lesions, fails to fixateExpand
