Form and motion processing pathways of the primate visual system are known to be interconnected, but there has been surprisingly little investigation of how they interact at the cellular level. Here we explore this issue with a series of three electrophysiology experiments designed to reveal the sources of action selectivity in monkey temporal cortex(More)
Although some change in the neural representation of an object must occur as it becomes familiar, the nature of this change is not fully understood. In humans, it has been shown that the N170-an evoked visual potential-is enhanced for classes of objects for which people have visual expertise. In this study, we explored whether monkeys show a similar(More)
The perception of visual motion relies on different computations and different neural substrates than the perception of static form. It is therefore useful to have psychophysical stimuli that carry mostly or entirely motion information, conveying little or nothing about form in any single frame. Structure-from-motion stimuli can sometimes achieve this(More)
A simple melanin assay using DL.DOPA as the substrate was developed to aid in the identification of Cryptococcus neoformans. The DL-DOPA drop test was simple and efficient. The best results (100% of the C. neoformans isolates were positive) occurred when C. neoformans was grown for two days at room temperature on Sabouraud agar modified. One to three(More)
Using visually complex stimuli, three monkeys learned visual exclusive-or (XOR) tasks that required detecting two way visual feature conjunctions. Monkeys with passive exposure to the test images, or prior experience, were quicker to acquire an XOR style task. Training on each pairwise comparison of the stimuli to be used in an XOR task provided nearly(More)
