Visual area MT: Microstimulating in MT Do MT neurons really determine perception? Microstimulate direction selective cells while monkey watches moving dots in one direction. Monkey shifted decision towards artificially stimulated direction C. Visual area MT: Motion Aftereffect Demo C. Visual area MT: Motion Aftereffect MT sensitive to both motion and the motion aftereffect; Activation in MT/V5, but not V1 reflects perception of motion
