Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of subjects attempting to detect a visual change occurring during a screen flicker was used to distinguish the neural correlates of change detection from those of change blindness. Change detection resulted in enhanced activity in the parietal and right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex as well as category-selective regions of the extrastriate visual cortex (for example, fusiform gyrus for changing faces). Although change blindness resulted in some… 

Neural correlates of change detection and change blindness in a working memory task.

It is proposed that frontal and parietal regions, possibly assisted by the cerebellum and the pulvinar, might be involved in controlling the deployment of attention to the location of a change, thereby allowing further processing of the visual stimulus.

Right parietal cortex plays a critical role in change blindness.

The results suggest that the right parietal cortex plays a critical role in conscious change detection and longer latencies to detect changes and a greater rate of change blindness compared with no TMS.

The role of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in visual change awareness

This work uncovers the causal role of the right DLPF cortex in perceiving changes by means of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), and shows, for the first time, that conscious change perception is associated with normal activity in this area.

The neural correlates of change detection in the face perception network

Electrophysiological correlates of change detection.

Findings demonstrate that ERPs are a useful tool for dissociating processes underlying change blindness and change detection, and suggest that short-latency ERP differences between these trial types reflect trial-by-trial fluctuations in advance task preparation, whereas differences in the P3 time range are due to variations in the duration of perceptual and decision-related processing.

An ERP study of change detection, change blindness, and visual awareness.

It is suggested that the earlier negativity is associated with a change in the content of visual awareness, whereas the later positivity may reflect more global processes needed in decision making and action planning.

Behavioral and Electrophysiological Correlates of Change Blindness (invited Paper)

Although the ability to notice a change in the visual scene has been used as an investigative tool to gain new insights on visual system mechanisms, it has recently become an issue itself. In the



Neural correlates of perceptual rivalry in the human brain.

The results suggest that frontoparietal areas play a central role in conscious perception, biasing the content of visual awareness toward abstract internal representations of visual scenes, rather than simply toward space.

Attentional modulation of visual motion processing in cortical areas MT and MST

It is reported that the responses of direction-selective neurons in monkey visual cortex are greatly influenced by attention, and that this modulation occurs as early in the cortical hierarchy as the level of the middle temporal visual area (MT).

The dynamics of object-selective activation correlate with recognition performance in humans

The results suggest that recognition performance is correlated with selective activation in object areas, and that subjects' recognition during identical visual stimulation could be enhanced by training, which also increased the fMRI signal.

Parietal neglect and visual awareness

It is suggested that new insights into the neural basis of visual awareness may be gleaned from a different neuropsychological phenomenon, namely visual 'neglect' after injury to regions in the parietal lobe, which is consistent with recent data on single-cell activity in the monkey brain.

Human brain activity during spontaneously reversing perception of ambiguous figures

Using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging, transient human brain activity changes during perceptual reversals are localized and reflected in rapid spatially differentiated activity modulation within a cooperative set of neural structures.

Multiple neural correlates of detection in the human brain.

Several brain regions, including V1/V2, middle temporal complex (MT+), left intraparietal cortex, and the frontal eye field, were activated at the onset of the dynamic noise, irrespective of whether a coherent motion target was presented early or late in the test period, or not at all.

Selective and divided attention during visual discriminations of shape, color, and speed: functional anatomy by positron emission tomography

Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to identify the neural systems involved in discriminating the shape, color, and speed of a visual stimulus under conditions of selective and divided

Voluntary Attention Modulates fMRI Activity in Human MT–MST

Differential Activation of Right Superior Parietal Cortex and Intraparietal Sulcus by Spatial and Nonspatial Attention

Data suggest first that right IPS is recruited for both nonspatial and spatial attention and WM, and second, right BA7 is recruited specifically for spatial forms of attentional processing.
