The majority (217/325, 66%) of the neurons in the middle temporal (MT) area/V5 show strong antagonistic surrounds, defined here by a decrease of at least 50% in the summation curve. We mapped the antagonistic surround in 145 such cells, using eight circularly distributed surround stimulus patches (Surround Asymmetry Test, SAT) and also mapped the surround in 51 of these 145 cells using a grid consisting of 25 square patches (Surround Mapping Test, SMT). Both tests showed that the angular… CONTINUE READING
