Object-and location-based inhibition in goal-directed action: Inhibition of return reveals behavioural and anatomical dissociations and interactions with memory processes

Abstract:

One way to increase understanding of the mechanisms that guide action towards relevant information is to examine processing of irrelevant information. In particular, our research suggests that goal-directed behaviour is aided by inhibition of irrelevant location- and object-based representations. Evidence from the inhibition of return (IOR) paradigm indicates that the nature of a task and the goals of action result in differing representational loci of inhibition, which elicit different behav...
