BACKGROUND Electrophysiological recording from the extrastriate cortex of non-human primates has revealed neurons that have large receptive fields and are sensitive to various components of object or self movement, such as translations, rotations and expansion/contractions. If these mechanisms exist in human vision, they might be susceptible to adaptation that generates motion aftereffects (MAEs). Indeed, it might be possible to adapt the mechanism in one part of the visual field and reveal… CONTINUE READING
