The visual field representation in striate cortex of the macaque monkey: Asymmetries, anisotropies, and individual variability
The topographic organization of striate cortex in the macaque was studied using physiological recording techniques. Results were displayed on two-dimensional maps of the cortex, which facilitated theExpand
Effects of Attention on Orientation-Tuning Functions of Single Neurons in Macaque Cortical Area V4
We examined how attention affected the orientation tuning of 262 isolated neurons in extrastriate area V4 and 135 neurons in area V1 of two rhesus monkeys. The animals were trained to perform aExpand
Coding of image contrast in central visual pathways of the macaque monkey
Measurements of contrast sensitivity were obtained from isolated neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus, striate cortex, and middle temporal visual area of macaque monkeys. Between the lateralExpand
How parallel are the primate visual pathways?
The visual system, like all sensory systems, contains parallel pathways (see Stone 1 983). Recently, m uch emphasis has been placed on the relationship between two subcortical and two corticalExpand
The middle temporal visual area in the macaque: Myeloarchitecture, connections, functional properties and topographic organization
The location, topographic organization, and function of the middle temporal visual area (MT) in the macaque monkey was studied using anatomical and physiological techniques. MT is a small,Expand
Effects of spatial attention on contrast response functions in macaque area V4.
Previous single-unit studies of visual cortex have reported that spatial attention modulates responses to different orientations and directions proportionally, such that it does not change the widthExpand
Feature-based attention in visual cortex
Although most studies of visual attention have examined the effects of shifting attention between different locations in the visual field, attention can also be directed to particular visualExpand
Hierarchical organization and functional streams in the visual cortex
Abstract In the macaque monkey, a dozen distinct visual areas have been identified in the cerebral cortex. These areas can be arranged in a well-defined hierarchy on the basis of their pattern ofExpand
The projections from striate cortex (V1) to areas V2 and V3 in the macaque monkey: Asymmetries, areal boundaries, and patchy connections
The organization of projections from V1 to areas V2 and V3 in the macaque monkey was studied with a combination of anatomical tecniques, including lesions and tracer injections made in differentExpand
Attentional modulation of visual motion processing in cortical areas MT and MST
THE visual system is constantly inundated with information received by the eyes, only a fraction of which seems to reach visual awareness. This selection process is one of the functions ascribed toExpand
