Population receptive field estimates in human visual cortex
We introduce functional MRI methods for estimating the neuronal population receptive field (pRF). These methods build on conventional visual field mapping that measures responses to ring and wedge… Expand
Visual Field Maps in Human Cortex
Much of the visual cortex is organized into visual field maps: nearby neurons have receptive fields at nearby locations in the image. Mammalian species generally have multiple visual field maps with… Expand
A new anatomical landmark for reliable identification of human area V5/MT: a quantitative analysis of sulcal patterning.
The location of human area V5 (or MT) has been correlated with the intersection of the ascending limb of the inferior temporal sulcus (ALITS) and the lateral occipital sulcus (LO). This study was… Expand
Visual field maps, population receptive field sizes, and visual field coverage in the human MT+ complex.
Human neuroimaging experiments typically localize motion-selective cortex (MT+) by contrasting responses to stationary and moving stimuli. It has long been suspected that MT+, located on the lateral… Expand

We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to assess abnormal cortical signals in humans with juvenile macular degeneration (JMD). These signals have been interpreted as indicating large-scale… Expand
Modeling center-surround configurations in population receptive fields using fMRI.
Antagonistic center-surround configurations are a central organizational principle of our visual system. In visual cortex, stimulation outside the classical receptive field can decrease neural… Expand
Topographic Representation of Numerosity in the Human Parietal Cortex
Number Sense Numerosity perception resembles primary sensory perception and, indeed, it has been called the number sense. As all primary senses are organized topographically in the cortex, Harvey et… Expand
The Relationship between Cortical Magnification Factor and Population Receptive Field Size in Human Visual Cortex: Constancies in Cortical Architecture
Receptive field (RF) sizes and cortical magnification factor (CMF) are fundamental organization properties of the visual cortex. At increasing visual eccentricity, RF sizes increase and CMF… Expand
Attraction of Position Preference by Spatial Attention throughout Human Visual Cortex
Voluntary spatial attention concentrates neural resources at the attended location. Here, we examined the effects of spatial attention on spatial position selectivity in humans. We measured… Expand
Color responses of the human lateral geniculate nucleus: selective amplification of S-cone signals between the lateral geniculate nucleno and primary visual cortex measured with high-field fMRI
The lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) is the primary thalamic nucleus that relays visual information from the retina to the primary visual cortex (V1) and has been extensively studied in non‐human… Expand
