osterior parietal cortex mediates encoding and maintenance processes in hange blindness

The results show that change blindness occurred more often when TMS was applied during the viewing of picture 1, which implies that right PPC plays a crucial role in the processes of encoding and maintaining information in visual short-term memory.

Neural Mechanisms of Implicit Visual Probability Learning

Evidence for predictive and probabilistic information learning at the visual attention and oculomotor control levels is reviewed and some of the studies that delineate the neural substrates that contribute to probability learning at both levels are reviewed.

Activity in LIP, But not V4, Matches Performance When Attention is Spread

It is suggested that behavioral set-size effects and the marked improvement in performance with focused attention may not be related to response enhancement in V4 but, instead, may occur in or on the way to LIP.

Investigating object representations during change detection in human extrastriate cortex

It is suggested that transcranial magnetic stimulation over LO enhanced the initial object representation and thus boosted neural events associated with object repetition and improved the sensitivity and response bias for detecting changes by selectively reducing false alarms.

The critical role of phase difference in gamma oscillation within the temporoparietal network for binding visual working memory

How does the brain enable us to remember two or more object representations in visual working memory (VWM) without confusing them? This “gluing” process, or feature binding, refers to the ability to

The critical role of phase difference in theta oscillation between bilateral parietal cortices for visuospatial working memory

It is proposed that signal complexity via coherent timing and phase synchronization within the bilateral parietal network is crucial for successful VWM functioning.

Insights from neuropsychology: pinpointing the role of the posterior parietal cortex in episodic and working memory

Findings from the human neuropsychological research are reviewed and the consequences to memory following PPC damage are examined and what missing evidence is needed to clarify the role(s) of the PPC in memory is addressed.

Functional Interaction between Right Parietal and Bilateral Frontal Cortices during Visual Search Tasks Revealed Using Functional Magnetic Imaging and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

This work has shown for the first time that premotor regions within the frontal lobe and rPPC are not only necessary to carry out a visual search task, but that they work together to bring about normal function.

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.

Space and the parietal cortex

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.

The interaction of brain regions during visual search processing as revealed by transcranial magnetic stimulation.

If TMS is used to disrupt processing of V5 at its critical time of activation during the motion/form conjunction task, concurrent disruption of right PPC now has a significant effect, where TMS at PPC alone does not.

An exploration of the role of the superior temporal gyrus in visual search and spatial perception using TMS.

The data suggest that conclusions about the area of brain damage resulting in neglect-like symptoms are highly dependent on the task used to diagnose them, with lesions in right PPC leading to deficits on the landmark task and conjunction visual search, and lesions inright STG resulting in deficits in feature based serial exploratory search tasks.

Parietal stimulation destabilizes spatial updating across saccadic eye movements

Saccadic eye movements cause sudden and global shifts in the retinal image. Rather than causing confusion, however, eye movements expand our sense of space and detail. In macaques, a stable
