    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK
    Neuropsychologia 44:307-19. 2006
    ..The data indicate that damage to the left parietal lobe disrupts the ability to select attributes of stimuli that have low salience when other attributes have high salience for the task...

    Carmel Mevorach
    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK

    Carmel Mevorach
    School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, UK
    J Cogn Neurosci 21:1204-14. 2009
    ..Selection of saliency seems to operate reflexively, whereas suppression of saliency relies on a preparatory phase that "sets up" the system in order to effectively ignore saliency...

    Carmel Mevorach
    University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, UK
    J Cogn Neurosci 21:303-15. 2009
    ..The data suggest a specific role for regions along the left IPS in salience-based selection, supporting the argument that previous reports of lateralized responses to local and global stimuli were contaminated by effects of saliency...
