  1. pmc Attention improves performance primarily by reducing interneuronal correlations
    Marlene R Cohen
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Harvard Medical School Department of Neurobiology, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Nat Neurosci 12:1594-600. 2009
    ..These results suggest that the representation of sensory information in populations of neurons and the way attention affects the sensitivity of the population may only be understood by considering the interactions between neurons...

    Marlene R Cohen
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Neurobiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Neuron 60:162-73. 2008
    ..The data are consistent with a mixed feature-based attentional strategy model in which the animal sometimes alternates attention between opposite directions of motion and sometimes attends to the two directions simultaneously...
  4. pmc Estimates of the contribution of single neurons to perception depend on timescale and noise correlation
    Marlene R Cohen
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Neurobiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California 94305, USA
    J Neurosci 29:6635-48. 2009
    ..These new data, considered together with our recent data on noise correlation in MT (Cohen and Newsome, 2008), provide a substantially improved account of psychometric performance in the direction-discrimination task...
  5. pmc When attention wanders: how uncontrolled fluctuations in attention affect performance
    Marlene R Cohen
    Department of Neurobiology, Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02155, USA
    J Neurosci 31:15802-6. 2011
    ..Our results suggest that all previously reported measures of behavioral performance should be viewed as amalgamations of different attentional states, whether or not those studies specifically addressed attention...

    Crista L Barberini
    Department of Neurobiology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA
    J Vis 5:603-21. 2005
    ..The sensitivity of single MT neurons and the correlation between trial-to-trial variations in single neuron firing and perception are similar for S- and L,M-cone stimuli, further supporting a role for MT in processing chromatic motion...
  7. pmc Stimulus onset quenches neural variability: a widespread cortical phenomenon
    Mark M Churchland
    Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA
    Nat Neurosci 13:369-78. 2010
    ..This widespread variability decline suggests a rather general property of cortex, that its state is stabilized by an input...

    Harvard Medical School Department of Neurobiology and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Neuron 70:1192-204. 2011
    ..Our results are consistent with a unified attentional mechanism that can modulate the responses of arbitrary subgroups of neurons...

    Marlene R Cohen
    Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Nat Neurosci 14:811-9. 2011
