Most models of the human visual system argue that higher-order motion-processing cortical regions receive their inputs only via the primary visual cortex (striate cortex), rather than also via direct projections from the thalamus that bypass primary visual cortex. However, recent evidence in non-human primates, along with some evidence in humans with damaged primary visual cortex (e.g., "blindsight" for motion in the blind visual hemifield), have argued for the existence of a direct thalamic-to… CONTINUE READING
