We review evidence for partially segregated networks of brain areas that carry out different attentional functions. One system, which includes parts of the intraparietal cortex and superior frontal cortex, is involved in preparing and applying goal-directed (top-down) selection for stimuli and responses. This system is also modulated by the detection of stimuli. The other system, which includes the temporoparietal cortex and inferior frontal cortex, and is largely lateralized to the right… Expand
A central role for the lateral prefrontal cortex in goal-directed and stimulus-driven attention
TLDR
It is found that the ventral, but not dorsal, network can account for stimulus-driven attentional limits to conscious perception, and that stimulus- driven and goal-directed attention converge in the lateral prefrontal component of that network. Expand
Identifying the Neural Systems of Top-Down Attentional Control: A Meta-analytic Approach
Several recent neuroimaging studies have investigated the brain systems involved in the control of voluntary orienting of selective visual attention by measuring the cortical response toExpand
Networks for attentional control and selection in spatial vision
Visual selective attention is a powerful cognitive ability that involves the interactions of widespread cortical networks, resulting in modulations of sensory processing at early stages of visualExpand
The Frontal Cortex and Exogenous Attentional Orienting
TLDR
The results suggest that the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex plays an important role in exogenous orienting and that component processes of this system may be differentially impaired by damage to different parts of the dorsal prefrontal cortex. Expand
Distraction and target selection in the brain: An fMRI study
TLDR
It is shown that posterior brain regions in parietal, occipital and temporal cortex are recruited in order to ignore distracting visual stimuli, while the specification and selection of relevant stimuli is associated with differential activity in frontal cortex and hippocampal areas instead. Expand
Functional dissociation of the inferior frontal junction from the dorsal attention network in top-down attentional control.
TLDR
Results support the account that IFJ primarily acts to shift attention whereas the dorsal network is the main locus for the maintenance of stable attentional states, and present evidence for their dissociable roles in the transient reconfiguration and sustained maintenance of attentional settings. Expand
Lesions of prefrontal cortex reduce attentional modulation of neuronal responses and synchrony in V4
TLDR
To identify critical sources of attentional feedback to area V4, the entire lateral PFC was removed, including the FEF, in one hemisphere and transected the corpus callosum and anterior commissure in two macaques. Expand
Neural mechanisms of top-down control during spatial and feature attention
TLDR
The generality of the frontoparietal network in attentional control is tested and models suggesting that subregions of the frontal-parietal network are highly specific for controlling spatial selective attention are supported. Expand
Cortical mechanisms of feature-based attentional control.
TLDR
Attentional modulation of the blood oxygenation level dependent fMRI signal was observed in early visual areas that are selective for motion and color, and both transient and sustained BOLD activity patterns were observed in different fronto-parietal cortical areas during shifts of attention. Expand
Functional Fractionation of the Stimulus-Driven Attention Network
A novel, salient event in the environment powerfully captures attention. This stimulus-driven attentional capture not only includes orienting of attention toward the event, but also an evaluativeExpand

Neural Systems for Visual Orienting and Their Relationships to Spatial Working Memory
TLDR
The IPs and FEF form a dorsal network that controls the endogenous allocation and maintenance of visuospatial attention and it is proposed that this cortical network is important for reorienting to sensory events. Expand
Mechanisms of visual attention in the human cortex.
TLDR
Functional brain imaging studies reveal that, both in the absence and in the presence of visual stimulation, biasing signals due to selective attention can modulate neural activity in visual cortex in several ways. Expand
The neural mechanisms of top-down attentional control
TLDR
FMRI was used during a cued spatial-attention task to dissociate brain activity related to attentional control from that related to selective processing of target stimuli, indicating that Superior frontal, inferior parietal and superior temporal cortex were selectively activated by cues. Expand

Objects play an important role in guiding spatial attention through a cluttered visual environment. We used event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (ER-fMRI) to measure brain activityExpand
A large-scale distributed network for covert spatial attention: further anatomical delineation based on stringent behavioural and cognitive controls.
TLDR
Although the task required attention to be equally shifted to the left and to the right, eight of 10 subjects showed a greater area of activation in the right parietal cortex, consistent with the specialization of the right hemisphere for spatial attention. Expand
The neurology of saccades and covert shifts in spatial attention: an event-related fMRI study.
TLDR
Functional MRI was used to re-examine the responses to saccades and attention shifts within a single experiment, and to assess responses to left- and right-sided stimuli independently. Expand
Increased Activity in Human Visual Cortex during Directed Attention in the Absence of Visual Stimulation
TLDR
The increased activity in visual cortex in the absence of visual stimulation may reflect a top-down bias of neural signals in favor of the attended location, which derives from a fronto-parietal network. Expand

TLDR
Visual cues consistently excited neurons in the intraparietal sulcus and adjacent gyral tissue of monkeys when they were flashed in the receptive field, which might signal a shift of attention. Expand
The Generality of Parietal Involvement in Visual Attention
TLDR
Activity in IPTO and AIPS generalizes across a wide variety of attention-requiring tasks, supporting the existence of a common neural substrate underlying multiple modes of visual selection. Expand
