Neural Activities in Cortical Area MT and Audiovisual Interactions in Time

Dr. Gene R. Stoner (Visiting Faculty) and his colleagues at UMRAM published a research article in Journal of Neurophysiology. In their study, they utilized a set of audiovisual stimuli that elicit an illusion demonstrating “temporal ventriloquism” in visual motion and that have spatiotemporal intervals for which neurons within area MT are selective. They found evidence of auditory input into area MT but not of the non-linear audiovisual interactions underlying this illusion. Click here for further information and the journal article.
