Inhibition and Interference in Selective Attention: Some Tests of a Neural Network Model
It is concluded that the similar performance characteristics of the model and human subjects in a variety of situations suggest that the model has captured some of the essential properties of mammalian selective action mechanisms.
Inhibition and the right inferior frontal cortex
A Simultaneous Modulation of Reactive and Proactive Inhibition Processes by Anodal tDCS on the Right Inferior Frontal Cortex
The current pattern of results validates the engagement of the rIFC in these two forms of inhibitory processes, proactive and reactive inhibition and it provides evidence that both processes can operate concurrently in the brain.
