Encoding of stimulus probability in macaque inferior temporal cortex.

Abstract:

Optimal perceptual decisions require sensory signals to be combined with prior information about stimulus probability. Although several theories propose that probabilistic information about stimulus occurrence is encoded in sensory cortex, evidence from neuronal recordings has not yet fully supported this view. We recorded activity from single neurons in inferior temporal cortex (IT) whilst monkeys performed a task that involved discriminating degraded images of faces and fruit. The ...
