Attention shifting in the working memory system plays an important role in goal-oriented behavior, such as reading, reasoning, and driving, because it involves several cognitive processes. This study identified brain activity leading to individual differences in attention shifting for dual-task performance by using the group comparison approach. A large-scale pilot study was initially conducted to select suitable good and poor performers. The fMRI experiment consisted of a dual-task condition… Expand
Activation of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in a dual neuropsychological screening test: An fMRI approach
TLDR
The results support the central bottleneck theory and suggest that the dorsolateral PFC is an important mediator of neural activity for both short-term storage and executive processes. Expand
Neural bases of focusing attention in working memory: An fMRI study based on group differences
TLDR
FMRI findings suggest that the neural substrates of focusing attention are based on SPL and ACC-DLPFC networks, and there were group differences in the focusing effect between high-span and low-span subjects: high- spans showed focusing effects greater than those of low- span subjects. Expand
A mismatch process in brief delayed matching-to-sample task: an fMRI study
TLDR
FMRI data showed an increased activation in the right anterior cingulate cortex and right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and activation biased to the left occipitotemporal cortex in the incongruent condition, which is suggested to reflect functional efficiency of the right cingulo-prefrontal network during the brief visual delayed period discrimination performance and mismatched information processing. Expand
The rostral prefrontal cortex underlies individual differences in working memory capacity: An approach from the hierarchical model of the cognitive control
TLDR
The results indicate that the rostral prefrontal cortex, which supports episodic cognitive control, possibly by sending a weighting signal toward the inferior parietal and middle/inferior temporal cortices that modulate saliency and sensory processing, underlies individual differences in WMC. Expand
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) applied to left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex disrupts verbal working memory performance in humans
TLDR
Evidence suggests that transient functional disruption of the LDLPFC impairs performance in the maintenance processing of the RST task, and this results in a significant deterioration of performance in RST. Expand
Functional dissociation of anterior cingulate cortex and intraparietal sulcus in visual working memory
TLDR
Electrophysiological studies of lateralized visual working memory identified an ERP component, defined as contralateral delay activity (CDA), directly modulated by the number of items held in memory, and recorded the high-density EEG in 20 healthy participants, revealing a memory load dependent activation in the IPS but also in the anterior cingulate cortex. Expand
Distinct brain networks for adaptive and stable task control in humans
TLDR
The interactions of these regions are characterized by applying graph theory to resting state functional connectivity MRI data, suggesting the presence of two distinct task-control networks that appear to operate on different time scales and affect downstream processing via dissociable mechanisms.

Neural Mechanisms of Individual Differences in Working Memory Capacity: Observations From Functional Neuroimaging Studies
Working memory capacity (WMC) indicates an individual’s capability of executive attentional control, which is thought to be critical for general fluid intelligence. Individual variability in WMC hasExpand
Interhemispheric connectivity and executive functioning in adults with Tourette syndrome.
TLDR
The authors explored the possible roles of the PFC and the CC in mediating interhemispheric interference and coordination in TS adults and found that better left-hand performance accompanied larger PFC volumes but not CC cross-sectional area. Expand
Hemispheric asymmetry in cognitive division of anterior cingulate cortex: A resting-state functional connectivity study
TLDR
FMRI results highlight the presence of clear asymmetries in functional networks associated with ACC-cd in the right hemisphere than the left, regardless of whether the connection was positive or negative. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that central executive functioning for attention shifting is modulated by the cingulo-frontal network. Expand
The neural basis of executive function in working memory: an fMRI study based on individual differences
TLDR
The results suggest that executive function, that is, working attention controlling system is more active in HSS than in LSS, and confirmed the hypothesis that there is a general neural basis for the central executive function in both RST and previous LST tasks despite differences in modality-specific buffers.

Prefrontal regions involved in keeping information in and out of mind.
TLDR
The anterior cingulate was engaged to a greater extent by the load than interference manipulation, suggesting that this region, which is thought to be involved in detecting the need for greater allocation of attentional resources, may be particularly implicated during awareness of theneed for cognitive control.

Event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging and a task-switching version of the Stroop task were used to examine whether these components of cognitive control have distinct neural bases in the human brain and a double dissociation was found. Expand
