Szabolcs Kéri, Helga Nagy, Einat Levy-Gigi and Oguz Kelemen How attentional boost interacts with reward: the effect of dopaminergic medications in Parkinson's disease European Journal of Neuroscience 38
We studied the effects of dopaminergic medications on attentional boost. Participants were asked to remember white target letters and ignore black distractors. Memory for target-paired and distractor-paired scenes was enhanced by dopamine replacement in Parkinson's disease. Enhanced attentional boost for distractor-paired scenes was related to increased attentional impulsivity. Attentional boost was dissociated from the alerting, orienting, and executive components of attention.
