Effects of saccades on visual processing in primate MSTd

Cloherty, Shaun; Mustari, Michael J; Rosa, Marcello; Ibbotson, Michael


In surveying their visual environment, primates, including humans make frequent rapid eye movements known as saccades. Saccades result in rapid motion of the retinal image and yet this motion is not perceived. We recorded saccade-related changes in neural activity in the dorsal medial superior temporal area (MSTd) of alert macaque monkeys. We show that the spontaneous activity of neurons in MSTd is modulated around the time of saccades. Some cells show considerable suppression of spontaneous...[Show more]
