    Chris L E Paffen
    Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Atten Percept Psychophys 72:1237-43. 2010
    ..Furthermore, we suggest that an occipito-fronto-parietal network known to be involved in selective attention and binocular rivalry mediates perceptual alternations by boosting the neural response at attended locations...

    Chris L E Paffen
    Helmholtz Institute and Experimental Psychology, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 3:e2311. 2008

    Sjoerd M Stuit
    Experimental Psychology, Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
    J Vis 9:17.1-15. 2009

    Chris L E Paffen
    Helmholtz Institute, Psychonomics Division, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands

    Universiteit Utrecht, Helmholtz Institute, Department of Experimental Psychology, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    J Vis 6:1421-30. 2006

    Sjoerd M Stuit

    Vision Res 50:1913-21. 2010

    Chris L E Paffen
    Experimental Psychology, Helmholtz Institute, Universiteit Utrecht, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Psychol Sci 17:752-6. 2006
    ..This increase in effective contrast will ultimately lead to a perceptual switch, thereby limiting voluntary control. Thus, attention speeds rivalry alternations, but has no inherent control over the rivalry process...

    Chris L E Paffen
    Universiteit Utrecht, Helmholtz Research Institute, Psychonomics Division, Heidelberglaan 2, NL 3584 CS Utrecht, The Netherlands

    Perception 38:1610-20. 2009
