Neural strength of visual attention gauged by motion adaptation

Abstract

Single-cell and neuroimaging studies reveal that attention focused on a visual object markedly amplifies neural activity produced by features of the attended object. In a psychophysical study, we found that visual attention could modulate the strength of weak motion signals to the point that the perceived direction of motion, putatively registered early in… (More)
