Another interesting UCSB SAGE Center Lecture By MIT's Robert Desimone “Prefrontal Control of Attention”. Amazing progress in understanding how the parts of the brain interact when we focus or are not able to. Interesting commonality between computer vision and humans.
"Dr. Desimone's research focuses on the neural bases of attention and executive control, which are frequently abnormal in major mental diseases. His lab combines neurophysiological recording in animals and fMRI and MEG brain imaging techniques in humans to understand how neural circuits filter out distracting information. His lab is particularly interested in the role of synchronized neural activity in attentional control."
