Eye gaze, hand-pointing gestures, and arrows automatically trigger attentional shifts. Although it has been suggested that common neural mechanisms underlie these three types of attentional shifts, this issue remains unsettled. We measured brain activity using fMRI while participants observed directional and non-directional stimuli, including eyes, hands, and arrows, to investigate this issue. Conjunction analyses revealed that the posterior superior temporal sulcus (STS), the inferior parietal… CONTINUE READING
