Cortical circuits for the control of attention
Miller EK and Buschman TJ
Current Opinion in Neurobiology, 2013. 23: 216-222.
How are some thoughts favored over others? A wealth of data at the level of single neurons has yielded candidate brain areas and mechanisms for our best-understood model: visual attention. Recent work has naturally evolved toward efforts at a more integrative, etwork, understanding. It suggests that focusing attention arises from interactions between widespread cortical and subcortical networks that may be regulated via their rhythmic synchronization.
