attention is directed to a single stimulus (Moran and When attention is directed to a location in the visual Desimone, 1985; Haenny et al., 1988; Maunsell et al., field, sensitivity to stimuli at that location is increased. 1991; Motter, 1993; Luck et al., 1997). At the neuronal level, this could arise either through One possible explanation for the variability of attena multiplicative increase in firing rate or through an tional effects with a single stimulus within the receptive increase in… CONTINUE READING
