The texture of an object provides important cues for its recognition; however, little is known about the neural representation of texture. To investigate the representation of texture in the visual cortex, we recorded single-cell activities in area V4 of macaque monkeys. To distinguish the sensitivity of the cells to texture parameters such as density and element size from that to spatial frequency, we used texture stimuli mimicking shaded granular surfaces. We varied the size and density of… CONTINUE READING
