The cognitive neuroscience of sustained attention: where top-down meets bottom-up

Sarter M, Givens B, Bruno JP (2001) The cognitive neuroscience of sustained attention: where top-down meets bottom-up. Brain Res Brain Res Rev 35(2):146-160. doi: 10.1016/s0165-0173(01)00044-3

Summary: The findings from human and animal studies provide the basis for a relatively precise description of the neuronal circuits mediating sustained attention, and the dissociation between these circuits and those mediating the ‘arousal’ components of attention.

Usage: The absence of attentional effects of infusions of 192-IgG-SAP into the primary and secondary visual cortex supports the notion that performance in such a task cannot be attributed solely to the ACh-mediated enhancement of the primary processing of sensory stimuli serving as targets in this task.
