The middle temporal (MT) and medial superior temporal (MST) areas of the macaque cortex have many cells that respond to straight movements in the frontoparallel plane with directional selectivity (D cells). We examined their responses to movements of a bar, of a wide dot pattern, and to combined movements of the two in anesthetized and immobilized animals.(More)
Using anesthetized and paralyzed monkeys, we have studied the visual response properties of neurons in the cortical area surrounding the middle temporal area (MT) in the superior temporal sulcus (STS). Systematic electrode penetrations revealed that there is a functionally distinct region where three classes of directionally selective cells with large(More)
The origins and terminations of the amygdaloid connections with the modality-specific visual cortical areas TEa (anterior TE area), TEp (posterior TE area), TEO, V4, V2, MST (medial superior temporal visual area), MT (middle temporal visual area), and V1 were studied in macaques. These were compared with the amygdaloid connections of a vision-related(More)
The enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was separately injected into striate, prestriate, inferotemporal, and parietal cortices in 19 macaque monkeys, and the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) was examined for retrograde transport. Labeled LGN cells were identified only in the animals, with HRP injections into the striate and prestriate cortex. Following(More)
Previous functional studies suggest that the posterior cingulate gyrus is involved in spatial memory and its posteroventral part, in particular, is also involved in auditory memory. However, it is not clear whether the neural connections of the posteroventral part differ from those of the rest of the posterior cingulate gyrus. Here, we describe the thalamic(More)
Retrogradely labeled cells were found in field CA1 of the hippocampal formation in monkeys following injections of horseradish peroxidase in ventral area TE of inferotemporal cortex. No hippocampal label was found following injections in dorsal area TE and area TEO. The findings provide the first demonstration of a direct projection from hippocampal field(More)
Anterogradely labeled terminals were found densely in field CA1, but not in any other field, of the hippocampal formation following injections of horseradish peroxidase into the ventral TE area of the inferotemporal cortex, whereas no label was seen in any field of the hippocampal formation following injections into the dorsal TE area. The labeled terminals(More)
The origins and terminations of the amygdalar connections with middle (ITm) and inferior temporal (ITi) gyri of inferotemporal cortex (area TE) were studied in Japanese monkeys by the horseradish peroxidase method. The ITm gyrus received a major projection from the lateral basal nucleus and a minor one from the accessory basal nucleus of the amygdala,(More)
The connections between the medial temporal cortical areas and CA1 of the hippocampus were examined in the Japanese monkey (Macaca fuscata) by means of retrograde and anterograde tract-tracing methods with wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) and fluorescent dyes (Fast Blue and Diamidino Yellow). The posterior parahippocampal(More)
Clinical studies have indicated that the posterior cingulate cortex is intimately involved in verbal and auditory memory. The present study was performed to obtain anatomical evidence for the above proposal. The connections of the auditory cortical areas with the posterior cingulate cortex in the macaque monkey were examined by retrograde and anterograde(More)
