The cognitive act of shifting attention from one place in the visual field to another can be accomplished covertly without muscular changes. The act can be viewed in terms of three internal mental operations: disengagement of attention from its current focus, moving attention to the target, and engagement of the target. Our results show that damage to the parietal lobe produces a deficit in the disengage operation when the target is contralateral to the lesion. Effects may also be found on… 
The Attentional Role of the Left Parietal Cortex: The Distinct Lateralization and Localization of Motor Attention in the Human Brain
It is widely agreed that visuospatial orienting attention depends on a network of frontal and parietal areas in the right hemisphere. It is thought that the visuospatial orienting role of the right
The cognitive neuropsychology of attention: a frontal lobe perspective
TLDR
There does not yet appear to be any conclusive evidence in the focal frontal literature concerning the localisation of other attentional processes, but there is some suggestion of localisation within the frontal cortex.
The disengagement of covert attention and the neglect syndrome
TLDR
A very strong relationship between clinical neglect and impairment of the disengagement operation across patients, and longitudinally, within patients is found and it is found that right-hemisphere lesions cause greater impairment in the disengage process than do left-hemispheric lesions.
Brain networks of visuospatial attention and their disruption in visual neglect
TLDR
This review focuses on the anatomy and putative functions of attentional circuits in the brain, mainly subserved by fronto-parietal networks, with a peculiar although not yet completely elucidated role for the right hemisphere.
Bilateral parietal lesions disrupt the beneficial effects of prism adaptation: evidence from a patient with optic ataxia
TLDR
The results suggest that the superior parietal lobe plays an important role in generating the beneficial after-effects of prisms on attention, and is likely to be important for attention, visuomotor control, and eye movements.
A Lesion Analysis of Visual Orienting Performance in Children With Cerebral Vascular Injury
Anterior brain insults during development have been shown to result in visual orienting deficits; however, the type of orienting deficit has varied across studies. Performance on an orienting task
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.
The role of human parietal cortex in attention networks.
TLDR
The parietal cortex has been proposed as part of the neural network for guiding spatial attention and while the patient's reaction times to left visual field stimuli were speeded by valid relative to invalid cues, attention to LVF stimuli was associated with enhanced activities in the right extrastriate cortex, right parietal and cingulates, and bilateral frontal cortices.
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.

TLDR
In cases of mid-brain degeneration due to progressive supranuclear palsy, saccadic movements were abolished, while covertorienting still occurs, however, covert orienting was found to be delayed in directions in which eye movements were most affected, suggesting a role for mid- brain pathways in covert Orienting.

TLDR
This paper explores one aspect of cognition through the use of a simple model task in which human subjects are asked to commit attention to a position in visual space other than fixation by orienting a covert mechanism that seems sufficiently time locked to external events that its trajectory can be traced across the visual field in terms of momentary changes in the efficiency of detecting stimuli.

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.

The results of these experiments support the contention that the mechanisms that shift attention are separate from those that control saccadic eye movements, and implication for theories of saccades suppression is discussed.

TLDR
Professor Mountcastle has shown just how useful the techniques of clinical and experimental psychology can be, even in the seemingly unpromising field of animal experiment, where intercommunication is minimal and behaviour rather than speech is the touchstone.
Moving attention through visual space.
TLDR
Support is provided for an analogue movement of attention across the visual field that does not involve the suppression found during saccades by reports that these shifts of attention can be time locked to a central cue.
Enhancement of perceptual sensitivity as the result of selectively attending to spatial locations
TLDR
The hypothesis that selective attention can enhance perceptual sensitivity can be supported, as well as theories of attention, such as “perceptual tuning, ” that suggest very early selective control.

TLDR
Measurements suggest that when summoned by a peripheral cue, attention travels through space at a constant velocity of about 1 degree per 8 msec, which is close to the speed of sound.
