Transcranial magnetic stimulation of posterior parietal vs. superior temporal sites cause differential effects on conventional conjunction vs. feature search tasks, respectively. We now report that when a decision has to be made on the target's left/right location, different lateralized deficits emerge in these two cases. With full-field arrays, we found a specific PPC search deficit for contralateral space. With smaller, structured arrays presented in left or right hemispace, we found a specific STG deficit for contralateral parts of the array.
