The neural theory of visual attention (NTVA) interprets attentional selection at the level of individual neurons. The interpretation was suggested by studies of single-cell activity in monkeys, and this chapter shows how NTVA accounts for a very large part of the findings in this field. Since the original presentation of the model by Bundesen et al. (2005) important new studies have been published, and these are considered along with the older studies. The empirical review in this chapter includes more than 20 central studies and covers all major effects reported in the single-cell attention literature. To illustrate the precision of NTVA, detailed mathematical fits to a few studies are presented.
