The Effect of Removing Superior Temporal Cortical Motion Areas in the Macaque Monkey: II. Motion Discrimination Using Random Dot Displays.

Abstract:

Nine macaque monkeys were trained to discriminate between a display in which all the dots moved randomly (visual dynamic noise) and an adjacent display in which a proportion of the dots oscillated coherently from side to side. Two monkeys in which area MT (middle temporal visual area) and adjacent regions were surgically removed were unable to perform even the simplest version of this task where the coherent motion was not masked by any visual dynamic noise. The other seven animals tolerated ...
