Anne K Churchland
Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Washington Medical School, National Primate Research Center, Seattle, WA 98195 7290, USA
Neuron 69:818-31. 2011
..These analyses help to differentiate among several alternative decision-making models...
- Neural representation of task difficulty and decision making during perceptual categorization: a timing diagram
Marios G Philiastides
Laboratory for Intelligent Imaging and Neural Computing, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Columbia University, New York, New York 10027, USA
J Neurosci 26:8965-75. 2006
..We use these results to develop a timing diagram for perceptual decision making and relate the component activities to parameters of a diffusion model for decision making...
- Lesions of the human amygdala impair enhanced perception of emotionally salient events
A K Anderson
Department of Psychology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut 06520, USA
Nature 411:305-9. 2001
..Our results reveal a neural substrate for affective influences on perception, indicating that similar neural mechanisms may underlie the affective modulation of both recollective and perceptual experience...
- Effect of subjective perspective taking during simulation of action: a PET investigation of agency
INSERM Unit 280, 151 Cours Albert Thomas, 69424 Lyon Cedex 3, France
Nat Neurosci 4:546-50. 2001
..We suggest that the right inferior parietal, precuneus and somatosensory cortex are specifically involved in distinguishing self-produced actions from those generated by others...
- Neural correlates of the automatic processing of threat facial signals
Adam K Anderson
Department of Psychology, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
J Neurosci 23:5627-33. 2003
..Amygdala processing is thus specific to fear only during attended processing, when cortical processing is undiminished, and more broadly tuned to threat during unattended processing, when cortical processing is diminished...
- The selective processing of briefly presented affective pictures: an ERP analysis
Harald T Schupp
Department of Psychology, University of Greifswald, Greifswald, Germany
Psychophysiology 41:441-9. 2004
..These data suggest that a quick glimpse of emotionally relevant stimuli appears sufficient to tune the brain for selective perceptual processing...
- The fusiform face area subserves face perception, not generic within-category identification
Department of Psychology, Jordan Hall, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Nat Neurosci 7:555-62. 2004
..These results indicate that the FFA is involved in both detection and identification of faces, but that it has little involvement in within-category identification of non-face objects (including objects of expertise)...
- Language-specific tuning of visual cortex? Functional properties of the Visual Word Form Area
Institut de Neurologie, Hopital de la Salpetriere, AP HP, Paris, France
Brain 125:1054-69. 2002
..Moreover, activations in the precuneus and the left thalamus were observed when subjects were reading RVF versus left visual field (LVF) words, and are likely to reflect the attentional component of the RVF advantage...
- Nature and interaction of signals from the receptive field center and surround in macaque V1 neurons
James R Cavanaugh
Center for Neural Science, New York University, New York City, New York 10003, USA
J Neurophysiol 88:2530-46. 2002
..Input to the suppressive surround may come in part from feedback signals from higher areas...
- A cortical region consisting entirely of face-selective cells
Doris Y Tsao
Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Science 311:670-4. 2006
..Almost all (97%) of the visually responsive neurons in this region were strongly face selective, indicating that a dedicated cortical area exists to support face processing in the macaque...
- Reward timing in the primary visual cortex
Marshall G Shuler
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
Science 311:1606-9. 2006
..These findings challenge the traditional interpretation of activity in the primary visual cortex...
- Interocular rivalry revealed in the human cortical blind-spot representation
Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA
Nature 411:195-9. 2001
..Our findings provide the first physiological evidence, to our knowledge, that interocular competition mediates binocular rivalry, and indicate that V1 may be important in the selection and expression of conscious visual information...
- Fast saccades toward faces: face detection in just 100 ms
Sébastien M Crouzet
Centre de Recherche Cerveau and Cognition, UMR, CNRS, Universite Toulouse, Toulouse, France
J Vis 10:16.1-17. 2010
..Such results impose very serious constraints on the sorts of processing model that can be invoked and demonstrate that face-selective behavioral responses can be generated extremely rapidly...
