    • The Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium 

      Saper, Clifford B.; Maunsell, John H. R. (BioMed Central, 2009)
      As the Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium (NPRC) ends its first year, it is worth looking back to see how the experiment has worked. In order to encourage dissemination of the details outlined in this Editorial, it will ...
    • The Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium 

      Saper, Clifford B.; Maunsell, John; Sagvolden, Terje (BioMed Central, 2009)
      The Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium (NPRC) was conceived in the summer of 2007 at a meeting of editors and publishers of neuroscience journals. One of the working groups addressed whether it was possible to construct ...
    • Nine Criteria for a Measure of Scientific Output 

      Kreiman, Gabriel; Maunsell, John (Frontiers Media SA, 2011)
      Scientific research produces new knowledge, technologies, and clinical treatments that can lead to enormous returns. Often, the path from basic research to new paradigms and direct impact on society takes time. Precise ...
    • A Normalization Model of Attentional Modulation of Single Unit Responses 

      Lee, Joonyeol; Maunsell, John (Public Library of Science, 2009)
      Although many studies have shown that attention to a stimulus can enhance the responses of individual cortical sensory neurons, little is known about how attention accomplishes this change in response. Here, we propose ...
    • Strength of Gamma Rhythm Depends on Normalization 

      Ray, Supratim; Ni, Amy M.; Maunsell, John (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Neuronal assemblies often exhibit stimulus-induced rhythmic activity in the gamma range (30–80 Hz), whose magnitude depends on the attentional load. This has led to the suggestion that gamma rhythms form dynamic communication ...
    • Visual Attention and the Role of Normalization 

      Ni, Amy (2012-12-12)
      Visual perception can be improved by the intentional allocation of attention to specific visual components. This “top-down” attention can improve perception of specific locations in space, or of specific visual features ...
