Shape and Rule Information Is Reflected in Different Local Field Potential Frequencies and Different Areas of the Primate Lateral Prefrontal Cortex

The present study analyzed how LFPs recorded from the monkey LFPC are modulated by the crucial factors of a shape manipulation task, and found that the transformed shape in the sample period strongly affected the theta and delta waves in the delay period on the ventral side, while the arm-manipulation assignment influenced the gamma components on the dorsal side.

The nature of magnitude integration: Contextual interference versus active magnitude binding

It is demonstrated for the first time that a congruent integration occurs only between the dimensions of the same stimulus, suggesting the involvement of an active mechanism integrating the different dimensions ofthe same object in a unified percept.

Change not State: Perceptual coupling in multistable displays reflects transient bias induced by perceptual change

The perceptual coupling phenomenon when two multistable displays viewed simultaneously tend to be in the same dominant state and switch in accord is reexamined and it is demonstrated that perceptual coupling reflects transient bias induced by perceptual change, both in ambiguous and disambiguated displays.

A Deep Learning-Based Approach to Video-Based Eye Tracking for Human Psychophysics

A deep learning-based approach which uses the video frames of low-cost web cameras to estimate the point of gaze on a computer screen via a shallow neural network and contributes to the growing field of deep-learning approaches to eye-tracking.



Feature binding in the feedback layers of area V2.

It is proposed that dual-selective neurons perform a "bridging" function, mediating the transfer of feedback-induced bias between feature dimensions, and can be propagated through V2 output neurons (of unitary selectivity) to higher levels of specialized processing and so promote selection of the target object's representation among multiple feature maps.

The role of the parietal cortex in visual feature binding

Using functional MRI (fMRI), it is shown that regions of the parietal cortex involved in spatial attention are more engaged in feature conjunction tasks than in single feature tasks when multiple objects are shown simultaneously at different locations but not when they are shown sequentially at the same location.

The lateral prefrontal cortex of primates encodes stimulus colors and their behavioral relevance during a match-to-sample task

Macaque area 8Av/45 computes, among other task-relevant information, the behavioral relevance of visual color features, which is most critical for both the selection of responses as well as the deployment of top-down modulatory signals, like feature-based attention.

Dynamics of feature binding during object-selective attention

Evidence is found for a rapid increase in neural activity localized to a color-selective region of the fusiform gyrus when the surface moving in the attended direction displayed an irrelevant color feature and to a dynamic neural substrate for the rapid binding process that links relevant and irrelevant features to form a unified perceptual object.

Strategic deployment of feature-based attentional gain in primate visual cortex

Investigation of how attention affects the population responses of neurons in the middle temporal visual area of rhesus monkeys to bidirectional movement inside the neurons’ receptive field shows that attentional gains are strategically deployed to optimize the discriminability of target stimuli, in line with an optimal gain mechanism proposed by Navalpakkam and Itti.

Parietal contributions to visual feature binding: evidence from a patient with bilateral lesions

The evidence suggests that a single explanation--an inadequate spatial representation--can account for R.M.'s spatial judgment and feature-binding deficits.

Neural mechanisms of object-based attention.

This work finds that activity patterns in early visual areas (V1-V4) are strongly biased in favor of the attended object, and shows how feedback of an average template to V1-like units can improve discrimination of exemplars belonging to the attended category.

Object-based attention involves the sequential activation of feature-specific cortical modules

Object-based theories of attention propose that the selection of an object's feature leads to the rapid selection of all other constituent features, even those that are task irrelevant. We used
