RCNS researchers identify the neural basis of distractor interference resistance

Researchers of the Brain Imaging Centre (BIC), Research Centre for Natural Sciences (RCNS) identified the neural mechanisms responsible for the processing of task-irrelevant, distracting visual stimuli. By employing state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques, researchers of the BIC revealed that contrary to what was previously thought, distracting visual stimuli cannot be simply filtered [...]
