We defined cortical areas involved in the analysis of motion in the far peripheral visual field, a poorly understood aspect of visual processing in primates. This was accomplished by small tracer injections within and around the representations of the monocular field of vision (‘temporal crescents’) in the middle temporal area (MT) of marmoset monkeys. Quantitative analyses demonstrate that the representation of the far periphery receives specific connections from the retrosplenial cortex… 
Connections of the Dorsomedial Visual Area: Pathways for Early Integration of Dorsal and Ventral Streams in Extrastriate Cortex
TLDR
Although DM may be important for providing visual inputs for guided body movements, this area is also likely to participate in other functions that require integration across wide expanses of visual space, such as perception of self-motion and contour completion.
Cortical inputs to the middle temporal visual area in New World owl monkeys
TLDR
Eight retrograde tracer injections into the middle temporal visual area of three New World owl monkeys were made to establish the sources of input to MT, and provide direct evidence within and across cases for retinotopic patterns of projections from early visual areas to MT.
The visual white matter connecting human area prostriata and the thalamus is retinotopically organized
TLDR
The anatomical pattern of white-matter connections between area prostriata and the thalamus encompassing the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) is reported, demonstrating for the first time a retinotopic segregation regarding the trajectory of a fiber bundle between theThalamus and an associative visual area.
Projection from visual areas V2 and prostriata to caudal auditory cortex in the monkey.
TLDR
Rec reciprocal projections from visual cortex to caudal auditory cortical areas in macaque monkeys found direct projections from area prostriata and the peripheral visual representations of area V2 that suggest that these connections are involved in spatial localization.
Cortical Connectivity Suggests a Role in Limb Coordination for Macaque Area PE of the Superior Parietal Cortex
TLDR
Results demonstrate that PE, defined as a single architectonic area that contains a topographic map of the body, forms specific connections with somatic and motor fields and hint at a wider variety of motor coordination roles.
Projections to Early Visual Areas V1 and V2 in the Calcarine Fissure from Parietal Association Areas in the Macaque
TLDR
A nested connectivity architecture, consisting of multiple direct and indirect recurrent projections from association areas to area V1 is suggested, as potentially contributing to attention and active vision.
Retinotopic specializations of cortical and thalamic inputs to area MT
TLDR
It is reported that spiny stellate cells, an anatomically specialized type of projection neuron, are distributed mainly in the foveal portion of the primary visual cortex (V1)-middle temporal area (MT) pathway, and it is demonstrated that the thalamic input to the MT area from the medial inferior pulvinar is organized in a retinotopic manner.
Localization of area prostriata and its connections with primary visual cortex in rodent
TLDR
This study examined the location, extent, and topography of the rodent equivalent of the primate Pro based on cytoarchitecture and molecular markers and identified its intimate connections with the primary visual cortex (V1) using retrograde and anterograde tracers.

Anatomical Evidence of Multimodal Integration in Primate Striate Cortex
TLDR
It is shown using retrograde tracers that peripheral area 17 subserving the visual field at an eccentricity of 10–20° receives projections from the core and parabelt areas of the auditory cortex as well as from the polysensory area of the temporal lobe (STP).
The dorsomedial visual areas in New World and Old World monkeys: homology and function
TLDR
The results support the suggestion, made earlier on the basis of more fragmentary evidence, that the areas rostral to the second visual area in dorsal cortex are homologous in all simian primates and emphasize the importance of determining the anatomical organization of the cortex as a prerequisite for elucidating the function of different cortical areas.
Visual Responses of Neurons in the Middle Temporal Area of New World Monkeys after Lesions of Striate Cortex
TLDR
It is shown that MT cells differ in their responses to lesioning of V1 and that only a subpopulation of MT neurons can be reasonably linked to residual vision and blindsight.

TLDR
The cortical and subcortical connections of the middle temporal visual area of the macaque monkey were investigated using combined injections of [3H]proline and horseradish peroxidase within MT to determine a hierarchical arrangement of visual areas.
Cortical connections of the middle temporal visual area (MT) and the superior temporal cortex in owl monkeys
TLDR
The connections of the middle temporal visual area (MT) and an adjoining superior temporal visual region (ST) were investigated with injections of 3H‐proline and horseradish peroxidase in adult owl monkeys and found to project ipsilaterally to an array of visual areas.
Cortical connections of MT in four species of primates: areal, modular, and retinotopic patterns.
TLDR
The architectonic analysis suggests that in addition to the commonly recognized visual fields, area 17, area 18, and MT, all three New World monkeys and prosimian galagos have visual areas DL, DI, DM, MST, and FST, which are compatible with the view that diurnal primates are more specialized for detailed object and color vision.
Organization of visual inputs to the inferior temporal and posterior parietal cortex in macaques
TLDR
In the prestriate cortex, labeled cells were found in V2, V3, and V4, but, in contrast to the loci labeled after parietal injections, those labeled after temporal injections were concentrated in the foveal or central field representations.
Pathways for motion analysis: Cortical connections of the medial superior temporal and fundus of the superior temporal visual areas in the macaque
TLDR
It is found that, in addition to connections with each other, both MST and FST have widespread connections with visual and polysensory areas in posterior prestriate, parietal, temporal, and frontal cortex.
The cortical connections of area V6: an occipito‐parietal network processing visual information
TLDR
It is suggested that V6 plays a pivotal role in the dorsal visual stream, by distributing the visual information coming from the occipital lobe to the sensorimotor areas of the parietal cortex.
Cortical projections of area V2 in the macaque.
TLDR
Results indicated that all V2 sites project topographically back to V1 and forward to V3, V4 and MT, and projections from the peripheral field representation V2 of parietal areas could provide a direct route for rapid activation of circuits serving spatial vision and spatial attention.
