Two-Dimensional Substructure of MT Receptive Fields

  title={Two-Dimensional Substructure of MT Receptive Fields},
  author={Margaret S. Livingstone and Christopher C. Pack and Richard T. Born},
Neurons at progressively higher levels of the visual system have progressively larger, more complicated receptive fields, presumably constructed from simpler antecedent receptive fields. To study this hierarchical organization, we used sparse white noise to map receptive-field substructure (second order Wiener-like kernels) in an extrastriate motion processing area (MT) of alert monkeys. The maps revealed a clear substructure, on a spatial scale comparable to the receptive fields of the V1… CONTINUE READING
