- When attention wanders: how uncontrolled fluctuations in attention affect performanceMarlene 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...
- Using neuronal populations to study the mechanisms underlying spatial and feature attentionMarlene R Cohen
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...
- Measuring and interpreting neuronal correlationsMarlene R Cohen
Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Nat Neurosci 14:811-9. 2011..Given these complicating factors, we offer guidelines for interpreting correlation data and a discussion of how best to evaluate the effect of correlations on cortical processing...
- Attention improves performance primarily by reducing interneuronal correlationsMarlene 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...
- A neuronal population measure of attention predicts behavioral performance on individual trialsMarlene R Cohen
Harvard Medical School and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
J Neurosci 30:15241-53. 2010....
- Cone signal interactions in direction-selective neurons in the middle temporal visual area (MT)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...
- Reversal of motor learning in the vestibulo-ocular reflex in the absence of visual inputMarlene R Cohen
Department of Neurobiology, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Learn Mem 11:559-65. 2004....
- A Refined Neuronal Population Measure of Visual AttentionJ Patrick Mayo
Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, 220 Longwood Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
PLoS ONE 10:e0136570. 2015..We demonstrate the sources of these problems using simulations and propose an amendment to the previous formulation that provides superior performance in trial-by-trial assessments of attentional state. ..
