Functional brain imaging has elucidated the source of attentional signals, but has also confirmed and elaborated findings from single-cell research on attentional effects in (target) visual areas. This chapter provides an overview of attention research within this relatively young, but highly expansive field. It explains the main methods of functional brain imaging (Section 9.1); describes central findings on attentional processing in both target (Section 9.2) and source (Section 9.3) areas of the brain; and discusses some of the most influential anatomical models of visual attention (Section 9.4). On the basis of this and other research, the chapter goes on to suggest how the processes described in the neural theory of visual attention (NTVA) model may be distributed in the brain (Section 9.5).

Keywords:   attentional signals, brain imaging, visual system, attentional processing, neural theory, visual attention
