Default Isolating Vertex Selection

O.K. so you-know-who has made it to Maya! I have a little problem though. I am used to AM, with this program you can select groups of points and hide others, lock them or invert the selection and work on specific areas - great tools.

Now I have been dabbling in Maya is there an equivalent? I can select vertices on Alfie but how do I isolate them? Can you put vertices into select sets and lock, hide or isolate them?

I want to be able to do this so as I can get at the toungue inside his mouth so he can poke it out... It also means I can import all my other models as *.dxf or *.obj inot Maya without remodelling them.

Anyone out there???

The isolate thingie can be found under the Show menu (seen on your attachment image above). Don't have access to maya right now, but it's there...trust me

*EDIT*
Show -> Isolate Select -> View Selected - there ya go...

Sorry, I made a mistake. It doesn't work on vertices but it works for faces...

I know you can do this for nurbs, but I'm not sure about polygons.
