Object-related activity revealed by functional magnetic resonance imaging in human occipital cortex.
TLDR
Evidence for an intermediate link in the chain of processing stages leading to object recognition in human visual cortex is reported, which suggests that the enhanced responses to objects were not a manifestation of low-level visual processing.
Functional analysis of human MT and related visual cortical areas using magnetic resonance imaging
TLDR
FMRI activity in human MT does in fact decrease at and near individually measured equiluminance, and area MT has a much higher contrast sensitivity than that in several other areas, including primary visual cortex (V1).
Intersubject Synchronization of Cortical Activity During Natural Vision
TLDR
A striking level of voxel-by-voxel synchronization between individuals is found, not only in primary and secondary visual and auditory areas but also in association cortices, which reveals a surprising tendency of individual brains to “tick collectively” during natural vision.
The human visual cortex.
TLDR
Recent findings and methods employed to uncover the functional properties of the human visual cortex focusing on two themes: functional specialization and hierarchical processing are reviewed.
Coupling Between Neuronal Firing, Field Potentials, and fMRI in Human Auditory Cortex
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is an important tool for investigating human brain function, but the relationship between the hemodynamically based fMRI signals in the human brain and
Early ‘visual’ cortex activation correlates with superior verbal memory performance in the blind
TLDR
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in ten congenitally blind human participants, robust occipital activation during a verbal-memory task (in the absence of any sensory input), as well as during verb generation and Braille reading is found.
Visuo-haptic object-related activation in the ventral visual pathway
TLDR
Using fMRI to map object-related brain regions, it is suggested that neuronal populations in the occipito–temporal cortex may constitute a multimodal object- related network.
Relationship between intrinsic connections and functional architecture revealed by optical imaging and in vivo targeted biocytin injections in primate striate cortex.
TLDR
High-resolution functional maps of the cortical architecture were obtained by in vivo optical imaging and it was discovered that binocular domains formed a separate set of connections in area V1; binocular regions were selectively connected among themselves but were not connected to strictly monocular regions, suggesting that they constitute a distinct columnar system.
