Background: Spatial attention could enhance the neural activities of attended locations in human visual cortex. As a salient stimulus, emotional image could enhance the responses in amygdala and visual areas. However, few studies examined the interaction of the attentional effects induced by emotional stimuli and spatial cues on the neural responses in visual areas. Methods: In the present study, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the combined and separated effects… CONTINUE READING
