Causal role of the prefrontal cortex in top-down modulation of visual processing and working memory
Selective attention filters information to limit what is encoded and maintained in working memory. Although the prefrontal cortex (PFC) is central to both selective attention and working memory, theExpand

Neural Suppression of Irrelevant Information Underlies Optimal Working Memory Performance
Our ability to focus attention on task-relevant information and ignore distractions is reflected by differential enhancement and suppression of neural activity in sensory cortex (i.e., top-downExpand

The Influence of Perceptual Training on Working Memory in Older Adults
Normal aging is associated with a degradation of perceptual abilities and a decline in higher-level cognitive functions, notably working memory. To remediate age-related deficits, cognitive trainingExpand

Age-Related Changes in Orienting Attention in Time
Temporal cues guide attentional resources toward relevant points in time, resulting in optimized behavioral performance. Although deficits in aspects of attention have been documented in olderExpand

Effects of noninvasive brain stimulation on cognitive function in healthy aging and Alzheimer's disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis
The study aimed to evaluate the effects of noninvasive brain stimulation on cognitive function in healthy older adults and patients with Alzheimer's disease. A comprehensive literature search wasExpand

Neural Responses to Complex Auditory Rhythms: The Role of Attending
The aim of this study was to explore the role of attention in pulse and meter perception using complex rhythms. We used a selective attention paradigm in which participants attended to either aExpand

Top-down modulation of visual feature processing: The role of the inferior frontal junction
We evaluate whether there are distinct or overlapping top-down network regions for attention to different stimulus features, such as color and motion. Expand

Expectation-Driven Changes in Cortical Functional Connectivity Influence Working Memory and Long-Term Memory Performance
Expectations generated by predictive cues increase the efficiency of perceptual processing for complex stimuli (e.g., faces, scenes); however, the impact this has on working memory (WM) and long-termExpand

Fronto-parietal network: flexible hub of cognitive control
A recent study shows that the fronto-parietal network (FPN), and subregions therein, alters its functional connectivity with nodes of other networks based on task goals. Moreover, FPN patterns ofExpand
