The role of the parietal cortex in visual attention--hemispheric asymmetries and the effects of learning: a magnetic stimulation study.

Abstract:

Our previous studies of the role of the parietal cortex in visual learning and attention showed that the right parietal cortex is required for normal performance on conjunction visual search tasks but that its role depends on whether subjects are naive or trained on the task. Here we extend these findings in two Experiments. Experiment 1 shows that magnetic stimulation of the left parietal cortex also impairs performance (measured as reaction time) on conjunction visual search tasks, but only...
