Abstract

When confronted with multiple stimuli, it is often necessary to prioritize one's attentional resources. In this issue, Lennert and Martinez-Trujillo (2011) investigate the neural dynamics in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex for stimulus pairs of differing importance and demonstrate that the responses to the lesser stimuli become increasingly suppressed with increasing difference.
