  • The middle temporal (MT) area has long been established as a cortical area involved in the encoding of motion information and has been thought to do so in retinotopic coordinates. It was previously shown that memory for motion has a spatial component by demonstrating that subjects do significantly worse on a match-to-sample task when the stimuli to be compared were spatially separated. The distance at which performance deteriorated (the critical spatial separation) increased at increasing… CONTINUE READING
