Blindsight relies on a functional connection between hMT+ and the lateral geniculate nucleus, not the pulvinar

Abstract:

When primary visual cortex (V1) is damaged, the principal visual pathway is lost causing a loss of vision in the opposite visual field. While conscious vision is impaired, patients can still respond to certain images; known as ‘blindsight.’ Recently, a direct anatomical connection between the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) and human motion area hMT+ has been implicated in blindsight. However, a functional connection between these structures has not been demonstrated. We quantified functiona...
