In primates, a split of the horizontal meridian (HM) representation at the V2 rostral border divides this area into dorsal (V2d) and ventral (V2v) halves (representing lower and upper visual quadrants, respectively), causing retinotopically neighboring loci across the HM to be distant within V2. How is perceptual continuity maintained across this(More)
In the primate visual system, areas V1 and V2 distribute information they receive from the retina to all higher cortical areas, sorting this information into dorsal and ventral streams. Therefore, knowledge of the organization of projections between V1 and V2 is crucial to understand how the cortex processes visual information. In primates, parallel output(More)
High-frequency oscillatory potentials (HFOPs) have been recorded from ganglion cells in cat, rabbit, frog, and mudpuppy retina and in electroretinograms (ERGs) from humans and other primates. However, the origin of HFOPs is unknown. Based on patterns of tracer coupling, we hypothesized that HFOPs could be generated, in part, by negative feedback from(More)
The primate visual cortex consists of many areas. The posterior areas (V1, V2, V3, and middle temporal) are thought to be common to all primate species. However, the organization of cortex immediately anterior to area V2 (the "third tier" cortex) remains controversial, particularly in New World primates. The main point of contention has been whether the(More)
Nine patients with rheumatoid arthritis, who had Silastic prostheses (Swanson's) introduced into 34 metacarpophalangeal joints, were reviewed 5 years after surgery. The most important long-term advantage conferred by the introduction of prostheses was pain relief; functional benefit was marginal. The majority of prostheses eventually fractured but this did(More)
Some of the areas that form the primate visual cortex have been defined with precision, including the first (V1) and second (V2) visual areas. However, the organization of the cortex located immediately rostral to V2 (the ‘thirdtier’ areas [1]) remains contentious. Recently, Lyon & Connolly [2] concluded that evidence obtained in several primate species(More)
The organization of the cortex located immediately anterior to the second visual area (V2), i.e., the third tier visual cortex, remains controversial, especially in New World primates. In particular, there is lack of consensus regarding the exact location and extent of the lower visual quadrant representation of the third visual area V3 (or ventrolateral(More)
Use of silicone rubber ('Silastic') prostheses for the replacement of metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints in rheumatoid arthritis was advocated by Swanson (1969), who considered the overall results of the operation superior to that of all previous surgical techniques. This report presents results of a short-term followup of twelve patients who had silastic MCP(More)
