The second visual cortical area (V2) of the primate is composed of repeating thin, pale, and thick cytochrome oxidase stripes containing primarily color-selective, broad-band oriented, andExpand
Experimentally induced visual projections into auditory thalamus and cortex.
Retinal cells have been induced to project into the medial geniculate nucleus, the principal auditory thalamic nucleus, in newborn ferrets by reduction of targets of retinal axons in one hemisphereExpand
Real and illusory contour processing in area V1 of the primate: a cortical balancing act.
It is known that neurons in area V2 (the second visual area) can signal the orientation of illusory contours in the primate. Whether area V1 (primary visual cortex) can signal illusory contourExpand
Toward a Unified Theory of Visual Area V4
Visual area V4 is a midtier cortical area in the ventral visual pathway. It is crucial for visual object recognition and has been a focus of many studies on visual attention. However, there is noExpand

Areas V1 and V2 of Macaque monkey visual cortex are characterized by unique cytochrome-oxidase (CO)-staining patterns. Initial electrophysiological studies associated CO blobs in V1 with processingExpand

Several brightness illusions indicate that borders can affect the perception of surfaces dramatically. In the Cornsweet illusion, two equiluminant surfaces appear to be different in brightnessExpand
A hierarchy of the functional organization for color, form and disparity in primate visual area V2
By combining optical imaging, single unit electrophysiology and cytochrome oxidase (CO) histology, we sought to reveal in greater detail the functional organization within the CO stripes of visual area V2 of primates. Expand
Optical Imaging of a Tactile Illusion in Area 3b of the Primary Somatosensory Cortex
In the tactile funneling illusion, the simultaneous presentation of brief stimuli at multiple points on the skin produces a single focal sensation at the center of the stimulus pattern even when noExpand
Pulsed infrared light alters neural activity in rat somatosensory cortex in vivo
Pulsed infrared light has shown promise as an alternative to electrical stimulation in applications where contact free or high spatial precision stimulation is desired. Expand
A Motion Direction Map in Macaque V2
In mammals, the perception of motion starts with direction-selective neurons in the visual cortex. Despite numerous studies in monkey primary and second visual cortex (V1 and V2), there has been noExpand
