Serial and parallel visual search tasks were presented to patients with focal lesions in dorsolateral frontal, lateral parietal, or temporal-parietal cortex. In the unilateral display conditions, search efficiency in all patient groups was similar to the normal control group for stimuli both on the ipsi- and on the contralesional side of the displays. In contrast, in the bilateral display conditions, all patient groups showed a marked delay in initiating search on the side contralateral to the… Expand
Parallel and serial search in two teenagers with lesions of the mesial parietal cortex
TLDR
Visual-spatial attention was examined in two 14-year-olds who had undergone occipital-parietal craniotomies for removal of mesial parietal tumors, suggesting that the mesials parietal cortex is part of the network that mediates serial shifts of attention. Expand
Visual search in patients with left visual hemineglect.
TLDR
Eye movement patterns during visual search reflect not only inattention for the contralesional hemi-field, but interacting deficits of multiple visuo-spatial and cognitive functions, even in the ipsilesional he mi-field. Expand
Hemispatial Neglect and Visual Search: A Large Scale Analysis
TLDR
Patients with brain-damage with or without accompanying neglect were impaired at searching for the contralateral target on both forms of visual search, relative to normal control subjects, although this deficit was magnified in individuals with neglect and was also exacerbated by the presence of hemianopia. Expand
Posterior parietal cortex and the filtering of distractors
TLDR
Testing the ability of a patient with bilateral parietal lesions to discriminate the features of a target surrounded by distractors of variable contrast found a finding consistent with the projections of parietal cortex to visual processing areas covering a wide range of receptive field sizes and eccentricities. Expand
Temporal aspects of visual search studied by transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
The results suggest that a sub-region of the right parietal lobe is important for conjunction search but not for pre-attentive pop-out, and highlights the efficacy of transcranial magnetic stimulation as a complement to other spatial and temporal imaging techniques. Expand
Temporal dynamics of parietal cortex involvement in visual search
TLDR
Results are consistent with evidence from functional magnetic resonance studies indicating that inefficient feature-based visual search requires an intact parietal cortex, and indicate that theParietal cortex is involved in inefficient search later than has been previously reported. Expand
Preattentive Processes Guide Visual Search: Evidence from Patients with Unilateral Visual Neglect
TLDR
It is suggested that flanking stimuli on the neglected contralesional side of visual space can influence the reference frame by grouping with task-relevant stimuli, and that this preattentive influence can be preserved in patients with unilateral visual neglect. Expand
Deficits in Subprocesses of Visual Feature Search after Frontal, Parietal, and Temporal Brain Lesions—A Modeling Approach
TLDR
Applying linear models to a patient sample with heterogeneous lesions may be a promising new method for investigating how different brain areas interplay in a complex task. Expand
Distinct neural substrates for visual search amongst spatial versus temporal distractors.
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to explore the behavioural and neuroanatomical correlates of non-spatial search for a conjunction of features within a stream of temporally-distracting stimuli and showed the temporal conjunction task was shown to index temporal selective attention.

The Inferior Temporal Lobe Mediates Distracter-Resistant Visual Search of Patients with Spatial Neglect
TLDR
Evidence is presented from 14 neglect patients searching for a target defined by two perceptual features that visual search is mediated by mechanisms of attentional competition and neglect patients with high distractibility had more frequent damage to the inferior temporal lobe. Expand

Component mechanisms underlying the processing of hierarchically organized patterns: inferences from patients with unilateral cortical lesions.
TLDR
The findings suggest that several component mechanisms are involved in the processing of hierarchical levels of structure, each linked to specific anatomical regions in patients with lesions centered in posterior superior temporal gyrus. Expand
Effects of lesions of temporal-parietal junction on perceptual and attentional processing in humans
TLDR
The results indicate that the hemispheric global/local asymmetry is due to a perceptual mechanism with a critical anatomical locus centered in the STG. Expand
Mechanisms of unilateral spatial neglect in relation to laterality of cerebral lesions.
TLDR
The investigation was designed to test the hypothesis that the extent of space to be explored may have a different influence on unilateral spatial neglect of right and left brain-damaged patients, and found that inability to extract visual information from one side of the stimuli during single eye fixations may be the most characteristic feature of unilateral spatial neglected.

Independent hemispheric attentional systems mediate visual search in split-brain patients
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an independent focus of attention is deployed by each of the surgically separated hemispheres in a visual search task, such that bilateral stimulus arrays can be scanned at a faster rate by 'split-brain' subjects than by normal control subjects. Expand
Visual Search Performance in the Neglect Syndrome
TLDR
The results indicate that neglect is associated with an inability to move attention from objects on the intact side to items on the neglected side, with a pronounced difference between the two sides. Expand

Right hemisphere dominance for attention
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that the right hemisphere is dominant for attention, as the left parietal lobe desynchronized most after right-sided stimuli and the right parietal lobes desynchronization equally after right or left stimuli. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that increasing demands on visual selective attention adversely affect both exploration of the left side of space and visual discrimination. Expand

TLDR
A network approach to the localization of complex functions offers an alternative to more extreme approaches, some of which stress an exclusive concentration of function within individual centers in the brain and others which advocate a more uniform (equipotential or holistic) distribution. Expand
Effects of parietal injury on covert orienting of attention
TLDR
The results show that damage to the parietal lobe produces a deficit in the disengage operation when the target is contralateral to the lesion, and suggest one mechanism of the effects of parietal lesions reported in clinical neurology. Expand
