Attention to color is mediated by reverse hierarchical selection in human visual cortex. In contrast to the canonical direction of information flow in visual cortex from lower to higher hierarchical levels of representation, brain activity underlying attention to color first arises in higher-tier visual areas (yellow) of the visual cortex and then propagates back to lower-tier areas (blue).
