    Vision Res 46:1010-8. 2006
    ..Despite this, the prime in WM affected responses latencies and the direction of the first saccade. Top-down search, guided by the contents of WM, can modulate selection even when salient bottom-up cues are present...
  2. doi request reprint Automatic guidance of attention from working memory
    David Soto
    Imperial College London, Faculty of Medicine, Division of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Charing Cross Campus, St Dunstan s Road, London, W6 8RP, UK
    Trends Cogn Sci 12:342-8. 2008
    ..We discuss the importance of 'top-down' influences from working memory on the 'early' deployment of attention and on the processes that gate visual information into awareness...
  3. pmc Dissociating the neural mechanisms of memory-based guidance of visual selection
    David Soto
    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:17186-91. 2007

    David Soto
    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK
    Neuropsychologia 44:1282-9. 2006
    ..The results suggest that, following the earliest deployment of attention, frontal lobe structures are involved in separating relevant target from irrelevant (object cue) information, when both are held in memory...
  5. pmc Seeing the content of the mind: enhanced awareness through working memory in patients with visual extinction
    David Soto
    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:4789-92. 2006

    David Soto
    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK
    J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 33:730-7. 2007
    ..However, the effects were absent when primes were only attended. The data suggest that there is automatic encoding into WM when items are verbalized and that verbal as well as visual WM can guide visual attention...

    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK
    Cogn Neuropsychol 26:635-54. 2009
    ..F.K.'s lesion makes it difficult for him to impose top-down knowledge rapidly, leading to responses automatically being based on attended, but irrelevant, cues under short cue-display intervals...

    Alex Bahrami Balani
    Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK
    Neurocase 18:98-111. 2012

    Sanjay Kumar
    Behavioural Brain Sciences, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK
    Eur J Neurosci 30:307-17. 2009
    ..Merely identifying the prime produced no effect on the N2pc component. The evidence suggests that WM modulates competitive interactions between the items in the visual field to determine the efficiency of target selection...

    Mem Cognit 38:1058-76. 2010
