Human-like perceptual masking is difficult to observe in rats performing an orientation discrimination task

Dell, Katrina Louise; Arabzadeh, Ehsan; Price, Nicholas


Visual masking occurs when the perception of a brief target stimulus is affected by a preceding or succeeding mask. The uncoupling of the target and its perception allows an opportunity to investigate the neuronal mechanisms involved in sensory representation and visual perception. To determine whether rats are a suitable model for subsequent studies of the neuronal basis of visual masking, we first demonstrated that decoding of neuronal responses recorded in the primary visual cortex (V1) of...[Show more]
