Abstract: 
How is the ability to visually search for something unique implemented in the visual system? New evidence reported by Balan and Gottlieb (2006) in The Journal of Neuroscience suggests that multiplicative gain modulation in the lateral intraparietal area might be the neural correlate of searching for an oddball. (Commentary on Balan, PF, & Gottlieb, J. (2006). Integration of exogenous input into a dynamic saliency map revealed by perturbing attention. J Neurosci, 26, 9239-9249.)
