Optic flow: A brain region devoted to optic flow analysis?



Optic flow: A brain region devoted to optic flow analysis?



Current Biology 8(16): R554-R556



The visual motion - or optic flow - that results from an observer's own movement can indicate the direction of heading through the environment. Recent experiments have strengthened the argument that neurons in a specialized region of the cerebral cortex are critical for the analysis of this important class of visual stimuli.
