This review focuses on neuroimaging studies that address the relationship between selective attention, neural activity and visual awareness. Withdrawing attention from particular visual stimuli reduces modality-specific processing in posterior visual cortex, and when attention is fully engaged elsewhere, even highly salient but task-irrelevant stimuli can fail to evoke activity and reach awareness. However, the link between visual attention and awareness extends beyond posterior visual cortex… CONTINUE READING
