Abstract

Bevil Conway will discuss how functional MRI in NHPs has advanced our understanding of the ventral visual pathway. Combining fMRI with neurophysiology has facilitated the systematic study of extrastriate cortex, guided targeted recordings from neurons in functionally identified patches of cortex, and provided a direct comparison of brain activity in humans and monkeys. This work underscores the importance of understanding how functionally identified populations of neurons interact to enable perception of colors, objects, places and faces.
