A laminar probe was chronically implanted in human putative MT+. The area was specifically responsive to globally coherent visual motion, a crucial aspect of the perception of movement through space. The probe contained 23 microcontacts spaced every 175 microm in a linear array roughly perpendicular to the cortical surface. Current-source density (CSD) and multiunit activity (MUA) were recorded while viewing initially stationary random dot patterns that either moved incoherently or dilated from… CONTINUE READING
