Isolating involuntary attention hold: a study of distraction

Distraction occurs when voluntary focus is disrupted by bottom-up influences on attention and must be reoriented back to task-relevant goals. Human neuroimaging studies suggest that the right temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) plays a critical role in the reorienting of attention following distraction. However, the neural processes by which distraction affects perception and subsequent actions are unclear. Here, we investigated the neural mechanisms of distraction when attention is differentially captured by a distracting stimulus; specifically, when attention...
