Parietal activation during visual search in the absence of multiple distractors.

Abstract

Search for a target object embedded in a visual scene involves the posterior parietal cortex. This region is thought to play a role in visual attention by counteracting the effects of distractors on targets or by inhibiting distractors. Using fMRI, we investigated whether the parietal cortex is also engaged in visual search without distractors. Cortical… (More)
