Cardinal directions for visual optic flow

  title={Cardinal directions for visual optic flow},
  author={M. Morrone and David Charles Burr and Silvia Di Pietro and M Stefanelli},
  journal={Current Biology},
As we move through our environment, the flow of deforming images on the retinae provides a rich source of information about the three-dimensional structure of the external world and how to navigate through it. Recent evidence from psychophysical [1] [2] [3] [4], electrophysiological [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] and imaging [10] [11] studies suggests that there are neurons in the primate visual system - in the medial superior temporal cortex - that are specialised to respond to this type of complex… CONTINUE READING
