Contributions of cat posterior parietal cortex to visuospatial discrimination
TLDR
Bilateral cooling of pMS cortex, but neither area 7 nor vPS cortex, induces a specific deficit in spatial localization as examined with the landmark task, which has significant bearing on the understanding of visuospatial processing in cat, monkey, and human cortices.
Visuospatial functions in the rat following injuries to striate, peristriate, and parietal neocortical sites
TLDR
The influence of lesions located generally within four regions of the rat#’s posterior neocortex upon the acquisition and retention of two-choice visual discriminations was assessed using a Thompson-Bryant apparatus and lateral peristriate lesions were associated with a retention loss of the brightness problem.
Functional specialization in rat occipital and temporal visual cortex.
TLDR
The functional properties along a progression of five visual areas in awake rats, from primary visual cortex over lateromedial (LM), latero-intermediate (LI), and laterolateral (LL) areas up to the newly found lateral occipito-temporal cortex (TO), are investigated.
Top–Down Attentional Deficits in Macaques with Lesions of Lateral Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
The PFC appears to play a critical role in the ability to flexibly reallocate attention on the basis of changing task demands and is removed unilaterally in combination with transection of the corpus callosum and anterior commissure in two macaques.
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.
Common and differential effects of attentive fixation on the excitability of parietal and prestriate (V4) cortical visual neurons in the macaque monkey
TLDR
The excitability of cortical neurons of prestriate area V4 and area PG of the inferior parietal lobule were examined using the method of single-neuron analysis in awake macaque monkeys and the functional properties of V4 neurons studied in the waking state were described.
Effects of inferotemporal cortex lesions on form-from-motion discrimination in monkeys
TLDR
Findings indicate that the anterograde effects of IT lesions on learning new form discriminations are less severe for forms defined by motion cues than for formsdefined by luminance cues, however, the retrograde effects ofIT lesions on retention are severe for Forms defined by either cue.

TLDR
It is suggested that, among other functions, the striate cortex acts as a distribution centre for the information coming over the retino‐geniculo‐cortical pathways, parcelling this information out to different visual areas of the prestriate cortex for further analysis.
Visual activation of neurons in inferotemporal cortex depends on striate cortex and forebrain commissures.
TLDR
It is suggested that the converging input onto single inferotemporal neurons from widely separated retinal areas may provide a mechanism for stimulus equivalence over different parts of the visual field, and it may be the absence of such a mechanism that contributes to the visual discrimination deficit that follows inferOTemporal lesions.
The topographic organization of rhesus monkey prestriate cortex.
TLDR
A distinct, topographically organized visual area, named V3A, was found in the region between areas V3 and V4 in the lunate and parieto‐occipital sulci, which supports the notion of a functional division of labour within the prestriate cortex.

TLDR
The location, topographic organization, and function of the middle temporal visual area in the macaque monkey was studied using anatomical and physiological techniques, with the emphasis on central vision being similar to that found in striate cortex.
