Tactile stimuli at the same location as a visual target can increase activity in the contralateral occipital cortex compared with spatially incongruent bimodal stimulation. Does this cross-modal congruency effect in the visual cortex depend on available cognitive resources? Visual attention and working memory can modulate responses to visual stimuli in the occipital cortex, with attenuation in conditions of high-attentional or low-memory load. Here, we asked if these two cognitive factors… CONTINUE READING
