The activity in human areas V1/V2, V3, and V5 during the perception of coherent and incoherent motion.

We have used the technique of positron emission tomography to study and compare the cortical activity produced when humans view a pattern of small squares moving incoherently with respect to one another and when the same pattern moves coherently and unidirectionally. A stationary version of the stimulus acted as a control. Our choice of paradigm was… CONTINUE READING
