Beyond Classical Retinotopy: Striate Cortical Mechanisms Associated with Voluntary Saccades and Attention

  • Iván Bódis-Wollner
Part of the Topics in Biomedical Engineering International Book Series book series (TOBE)


Most traditional models of visual attention and eye movements consider the visual primary cortex (V1) simply as a way-station between the retina and the brain whose purpose is to provide information about the location and elementary feature of visual stimuli. Current evidence suggests, however, that visual information is modified in V1 by visual context, spatial attention and by eye movement contingent spatial rescaling.
