Contributions of parvocellular and magnocellular pathways to visual perception near the hands are not fixed, but can be dynamically altered

Goodhew, Stephanie Catherine; Clarke, Ruby


Visual perception is altered near the hands, and several mechanisms have been proposed to account for this, including differences in attention and a bias toward magnocellular-preferential processing. Here we directly pitted these theories against one another in a visual search task consisting of either magnocellular- or parvocellular-preferred stimuli. Surprisingly, we found that when a large number of items are in the display, there is a parvocellular processing bias in near-hand space....[Show more]
