Saccade-induced image motion cannot account for post-saccadic enhancement of visual processing in primate MST
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2015-09-01)
Primates use saccadic eye movements to make gaze changes. In many visual areas, including the dorsal medial superior temporal area (MSTd) of macaques, neural responses to visual stimuli are reduced during saccades but ...
