Improvements in visuospatial perception such as contrast sensitivity and Vernier acuity continue until late in childhood, but the neural mechanisms driving these age-related changes are currently unclear. One contributing factor could be the protracted development of spatial tuning of neuronal populations across the visual cortex. Here we tested this possibility using population receptive field (pRF) mapping (Dumoulin and Wandell, 2008) in 6to 12-year-old children and adults. We fitted pRF… CONTINUE READING
