Transcranial magnetic stimulation was applied over the parietal visual cortex of subjects while they were performing 'pop-out' or conjunction visual search tasks in arrays containing eight distractors. Magnetic stimulation had no detrimental effect on the performance of pop-out search, but did significantly increase reaction times on conjunction search when stimulation was applied over the right parietal cortex 100 msec after the onset of the visual display for trials when the target was… Expand

Disturbance of visual search by stimulating to posterior parietal cortex in the brain using transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
The results show that the reaction times of the hard feature task are longer than those of the easy feature task. Expand
The role of the angular gyrus in visual conjunction search investigated using signal detection analysis and transcranial magnetic stimulation
TLDR
This work investigates the role of the posterior parietal cortex in visual search by applying TMS while subjects performed unspeeded feature and conjunction visual search tasks matched for level of difficulty and considers four possible explanation: binding, attentional control, spatial localisation and visuomotor co-ordinate transformations.

Temporal Analysis of Visual Search Task by Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
In this study, we examined the temporal aspects of the right posterior parietal cortex in easy feature \pop-out" visual search using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The transcranial magneticExpand
A TMS study of temporal aspect of the posterior parietal cortex involved in visual search
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is applied as an important method to investigate human cognitive process. In this study, we used TMS to investigate temporal aspect of the right posteriorExpand
Temporal aspect of three visual search tasks by using TMS
TLDR
It is considered that the right posterior parietal cortex was involved in the pop-out visual search at about 150 ms after visual stimulus presentation, when there was a significant elevation in target-present reaction time when the TMS pluses were applied 150ms after visual stimuli presentation. Expand
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Reveals Attentional Feedback to Area V1 during Serial Visual Search
TLDR
This study supports the idea that serial search differs from parallel search by the presence of additional cycles of a select-and-focus iterative loop between V1 and higher-level areas. Expand
TMS Effect on Visual Search Task
TLDR
It is considered that "pop-out" visual search was processed in the right posterior parietal cortex at about 150 msec after stimulus present, and there was a significant elevation in response time when the TMS pluses were applied. Expand
Effect of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation ( TMS ) on Visual Search Task
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has been applied as an important method to investigate human cognitive process. In this study, we applied TMS to investigate temporal aspect of the functionalExpand
A Study of Temporal Aspect of Posterior Parietal Cortex in Visual Search Using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
TLDR
The temporal aspects of the PPC in feature search are investigated to suggest that the spatial processing of feature search is probably processed in the posterior parietal cortex at about 150-170 ms after visual search stimuli presentation. Expand
Temporal dynamics of parietal cortex involvement in visual search
TLDR
Results are consistent with evidence from functional magnetic resonance studies indicating that inefficient feature-based visual search requires an intact parietal cortex, and indicate that theParietal cortex is involved in inefficient search later than has been previously reported. Expand

Transcranial magnetic stimulation of the posterior parietal cortex degrades accuracy of memory-guided saccades in humans.
TLDR
Findings strongly suggest that the right PPC is involved in maintaining spatial accuracy of remembered target locations of memory-guided saccades in humans. Expand
Induction of visual extinction by rapid‐rate transcranial magnetic stimulation of parietal lobe
TLDR
It is concluded that rT MS to the occipital lobe causes a sensory detection block, whereas rTMS to the parietal lobe can induce selective extinction of contralateral visual stimuli during a simultaneous double stimulus. Expand
Transcranial magnetic stimulation of extrastriate cortex degrades human motion direction discrimination
The human temporo-parieto-occipital junction is an extrastriate visual area that may mediate motion vision processing. We determined if transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) delivered over thisExpand

TLDR
The contralateral deficit was evident in all patient groups, supporting the notion that dorsolateral frontal as well as posterior parietal and temporal-parietal cortex plays a critical role in visual spatial attention. Expand
Visual Search for Feature and Conjunction Targets with an Attention Deficit
TLDR
Brain-damaged subjects who had previously been identified as suffering from a visual attention deficit for contralesional stimulation were tested on a series of visual search tasks and showed a marked deficit in conjunction search. Expand

TLDR
The overall pattern of results was consistent with guided search models in which preattentive stimulus information is used to guide attention to task-relevant stimuli. Expand

TLDR
Visual cues consistently excited neurons in the intraparietal sulcus and adjacent gyral tissue of monkeys when they were flashed in the receptive field, which might signal a shift of attention. Expand
A PET study of visuospatial attention
TLDR
PET findings indicate that parietal and frontal regions control different aspects of spatial selection, and the functional asymmetry in superior parietal cortex may be relevant for the pathophysiology of unilateral neglect. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the hemispheric global/local asymmetry is due to a perceptual mechanism with a critical anatomical locus centered in the STG. Expand
