Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Guerin et al. (2012) provide novel evidence that distinct parietal mechanisms for attention and memory compete when past experiences are compared to current perceptual input. While dorsal parietal cortex supports attention to perceptual stimuli, high attentional demands suppress ventral parietal regions important for veridical remembering.
