  1. ncbi request reprint Attention to intention
    Hakwan C Lau
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
    Science 303:1208-10. 2004
    ..Prefrontal activity, but not parietal activity, was more strongly coupled with activity in the pre-SMA. We conclude that activity in the pre-SMA reflects the representation of intention...
  2. ncbi request reprint Willed action and attention to the selection of action
    H C Lau
    Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain, UK
    Neuroimage 21:1407-15. 2004
    ..However, the presupplementary motor area (pre-SMA) may subserve this function as activity in this region was found to be tightly associated with the free selection of responses...
  3. pmc Medial frontal cortex: from self-generated action to reflection on one's own performance
    Richard E Passingham
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford, UK, OX1 3UD
    Trends Cogn Sci 14:16-21. 2010
    ..Finally, we suggest that the pattern of anatomical connections is consistent with the proposal that the medial frontal cortex is crucially involved in self-generated action and self-reflection...
  4. ncbi request reprint On measuring the perceived onsets of spontaneous actions
    Hakwan C Lau
    Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, University College London, London WC1N 3BG, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 26:7265-71. 2006
    ..We therefore argue that the timing method of Libet et al. (1983) is problematic, because the measuring process affects the neural representations of action and thus also the perceived onsets that the method is designed to measure...
  5. ncbi request reprint Manipulating the experienced onset of intention after action execution
    Hakwan C Lau
    University College London, UK
    J Cogn Neurosci 19:81-90. 2007
    ..A model, which is based on the mechanism of cue integration under the presence of noise, is offered to explain the results. The implications for the conscious control of spontaneous actions are discussed...
  6. ncbi request reprint Unconscious activation of the cognitive control system in the human prefrontal cortex
    Hakwan C Lau
    Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, University College London, London WC1N 3BG, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 27:5805-11. 2007
    ..These results suggest that the cognitive control system in the prefrontal cortex is not exclusively driven by conscious information, as has been believed previously...
  7. ncbi request reprint Should scientists think? Comment on Machado and Silva (2007)
    Hakwan C Lau
    University College London and University of Oxford
    Am Psychol 62:686-8; discussion 689-91. 2007
    ..The author's claim is that there is neural activity in the medial frontal wall that reflects such conscious feelings. Other recent empirical evidence that supports this view is described...
  8. pmc Relative blindsight in normal observers and the neural correlate of visual consciousness
    Hakwan C Lau
    Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, University College London, London WC1N 3BG, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:18763-8. 2006
    ..Our results suggest that the prefrontal cortex is important for the essentially subjective aspects of conscious perception...
