New paper on saccadic localization in blindsight

We have a new paper just published, investigating the ability to localize visual targets when a portion of the primary visual cortex (V1) is lesioned. Patients with such lesions lose conscious perception within the affected visual field portion, but they exhibit residual performance capabilities (called “blindsight”). Our collaborators Tadashi Isa and Masatoshi Yoshida have established[…]

New article in the Journal of Neurophysiology

We have a new article in press at the Journal of Neurophysiology. In this study, we explored the phenomenon of “saccadic suppression”, in which sensitivity to visual stimuli is reduced if these stimuli are presented around the time of saccadic eye movements. This phenomenon is normally thought to help us have a stable percept of[…]
