Geoff Boynton - fMRI studies of Attention

In his research Dr. Geoff Boynton from the University of Washington is trying to identify the neural basis for attentional processes. To the surprise of many neuroscientists, attention can modulate neural processing at very early stages of perceptual processing - as early as V1 and maybe even earlier. Dr. Boynton discusses the progress we have made in our understanding of attention and some of the methods that he and others have used to push the field forward.
