Binocular Flash Suppression in the Primary Visual Cortex of Anesthetized and Awake Macaques

Primary visual cortex (V1) was implicated as an important candidate for the site of perceptual suppression in numerous psychophysical and imaging studies. However, neurophysiological results in awake monkeys provided evidence for competition mainly between neurons in areas beyond V1. In particular, only a moderate percentage of neurons in V1 were found to… CONTINUE READING
