Abstract

Can the brain attend to more than a single location at one time? In this issue of Neuron, McMains and Somers report psychophysical and fMRI evidence showing that subjects can attend to two separate locations concurrently and that divided spatial attention leads to separate zones of attentional enhancement in early visual cortex.
