Practising orientation identification improves orientation coding in V1 neurons
The adult brain shows remarkable plasticity, as demonstrated by the improvement in fine sensorial discriminations after intensive practice. The behavioural aspects of such perceptual learning areExpand

Spatial sensitivity of macaque inferior temporal neurons
Recent findings in dorsal visual stream areas and computational work raise the question whether neurons at the end station of the ventral visual stream can code for stimulus position. The authorsExpand

Human perceptual learning in identifying the oblique orientation: retinotopy, orientation specificity and monocularity.
1. Human perceptual learning in discrimination of the oblique orientation was studied using psychophysical methods. Subjects were trained daily to improve their ability to identify the orientation ofExpand

Stimulus repetition probability does not affect repetition suppression in macaque inferior temporal cortex.
Recent human functional magnetic resonance imaging studies (Summerfield C, Trittschuh EH, Monti JM, Mesulam MM, Egner T. 2008. Neural repetition suppression reflects fulfilled perceptualExpand

Learning to See the Difference Specifically Alters the Most Informative V4 Neurons
Perceptual learning is an instance of adult plasticity whereby training in a sensory (e.g., a visual task) results in neuronal changes leading to an improved ability to perform the task. Yet studiesExpand

Selectivity of Neuronal Adaptation Does Not Match Response Selectivity: A Single-Cell Study of the fMRI Adaptation Paradigm
fMRI-based adaptation paradigms (fMR-A) have been used to infer neuronal stimulus selectivities in humans. Inferring neuronal selectivities from fMR-A, however, requires an understanding of theExpand

Cue-invariant shape selectivity of macaque inferior temporal neurons.
The perception of shape is independent of the size and position of the shape and also of the visual cue that defines it. The same shape can be recognized whether defined by a difference in luminance,Expand

Human orientation discrimination tested with long stimuli
Human orientation discrimination was measured for single long lines presented sequentially. Orientation sensitivity is better for a narrow range of orientations around the principal meridians. BothExpand

Selectivity for 3D shape that reveals distinct areas within macaque inferior temporal cortex.
The anterior part of the macaque inferior temporal cortex, area TE, occupies a large portion of the temporal lobe and is critical for object recognition. Thus far, no relation between anatomicalExpand

Cortical correlate of pattern backward masking.
The perception of a briefly presented shape is strongly impaired when it is followed by another pattern, a phenomenon called backward masking. Expand
