The spatial allocation of attention is a fundamental process that allows us to detect relevant behavioural stimuli, and involves both the engagement and disengagement of attention. The prefrontal (PFC) and posterior parietal (PPC) cortical regions have been identified as central nodes in a network for allocation of spatial attention. Additionally, these regions are modulated by the neurochemical acetylcholine. In this thesis, I investigated the neural underpinnings of engaging and disengaging… CONTINUE READING
