Human Attention to a Particular Portion of an Image Alters the Way the Brain Processes Visual Cortex Responses to That Image

Our ability to ignore some, but not other stimuli, allows us to focus our attention and improve our performance on a specific task.

How this occurs was recently demonstrated by an international team of researchers led by Justin Gardner at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Wako.
