New dispatch in Current Biology


Interesting dispatch in Current Biology by Marco Tamietto and David Leopold on the recent study by Koulla, Jan, David and Concetta about Area Prostriata in the Human Brain! PDF

Human area Prostriata is a small, unstudied portion of the visual brain set deep in the calcarine sulcus, next to V1. A recent neuroimaging study in humans indicates that this area is specialized to respond to rapidly moving stimuli in the far periphery, consistent with single-unit responses in other mammals.
