    Amishi P Jha

    Brain Res Cogn Brain Res 15:61-9. 2002
    ..These results are consistent with a model of spatial working memory in which perceptual level selective attention is utilized throughout the entire period of active maintenance to keep relevant spatial information in mind...

    Amishi P Jha
    Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, 3401 Walnut Street, Suite 302C, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Emotion 10:54-64. 2010
    ..Nonetheless, these findings suggest that sufficient MT practice may protect against functional impairments associated with high-stress contexts...

    Amism P Jha

    Brain Res 1097:133-41. 2006
    ..These results suggest that integrative functions of PFC that allow past information to guide future actions may emerge from communication between discrete subregions supporting mnemonic and response operations...
  5. ncbi request reprint The role of prefrontal cortex in resolving distractor interference
    Amishi P Jha
    Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
    Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 4:517-27. 2004
    ..As in ventrolateral PFC, this congruency effect was only present for correct trials. These results suggest that the ventrolateral PFC and fusiform face area may work together to support delay-spanning interference resolution...
  6. ncbi request reprint Selective attention supports working memory maintenance by modulating perceptual processing of distractors
    Kartik K Sreenivasan
    University of Pennsylvania, PA 19104, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 19:32-41. 2007
    ..These results suggest that perceptual processing of distracting faces may be attenuated due to attentional biasing against sensory processing of distractors that are most behaviorally intrusive during working memory maintenance...
  7. ncbi request reprint Temporal characteristics of top-down modulations during working memory maintenance: an event-related potential study of the N170 component
    Kartik K Sreenivasan
    University of Pennsylvania, PA 19104, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 19:1836-44. 2007
    ..We argue based on these results that temporally early biasing of domain-specific perceptual processing may be a critical mechanism by which WM maintenance is achieved...

    Kartik K Sreenivasan
    University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104, USA
    Atten Percept Psychophys 71:837-46. 2009
    ..Critically, the early attentional benefit is present only when the "face signal" (i.e., the perceptual quality of the face) in the environment is suboptimal...

  1. Neural Effects of Mindfulness Training on Attention
    Amishi Jha; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..This project has 2 potential long-term benefits: 1) Refinement of current techniques and therapies using MMT; 2) Introduction of MMT as a neuroenhancement tool that may improve the functioning of attention. ..
