Abstract

Current evidence challenges the traditional view of attention as a continuously active spotlight, suggesting instead a rhythmic operation at around 4-8 Hz. New intracranial recordings in monkeys and humans, including two papers in this issue of Neuron, by Helfrich et al. (2018) and Fiebelkorn et al. (2018), now validate this alternative notion and characterize its oscillatory neural bases.
