  1. pmc Representation of tactile curvature in macaque somatosensory area 2
    Jeffrey M Yau
    Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute and Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA
    J Neurophysiol 109:2999-3012. 2013
    ..These results reveal that transitions from orientation tuning to curvature selectivity in the somatosensory cortical hierarchy occur within SI rather than between SI and SII...

    Jeffrey M Yau
    Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
    Neuroimage 76:134-44. 2013
    ..Notably, this method can be used generally to identify the position and orientation of MR-compatible hardware placed near the head in the MR scanner...

    Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute and Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
    Cereb Cortex 23:198-209. 2013
    ..In either case, the dynamics of contour information in V4 and PIT appear to reflect a sequential hierarchical process of shape synthesis...
  4. pmc Analogous intermediate shape coding in vision and touch
    Jeffrey M Yau
    Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute and Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:16457-62. 2009
    ..We found similar patterns of shape sensitivity characterized by tuning for curvature direction. These parallel tuning patterns imply analogous shape coding mechanisms in intermediate visual and somatosensory cortex...
  5. pmc A tactile stimulator for studying passive shape perception
    John W Lane
    Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute, Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
    J Neurosci Methods 185:221-9. 2010
    ..Because the two components of the stimulator are independently controlled, the stimulator allows for parametric study of the mechanoreceptive and proprioceptive contributions to 3D tactile shape perception...
