When stimulus information enters the visual cortex, it is rapidly processed for identification. However, sometimes the processing of the stimulus is inadequate and the subject fails to notice the stimulus. Human psychophysical studies show that this occurs during states of inattention or absent-mindedness. At a neurophysiological level, it remains unclear what these states are. To study the role of cortical state in perception, we analyzed neural activity in the monkey primary visual cortex… CONTINUE READING
