- Representation of tactile curvature in macaque somatosensory area 2Jeffrey 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...
- Efficient and robust identification of cortical targets in concurrent TMS-fMRI experimentsJeffrey 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...
- Curvature processing dynamics in macaque area V4Jeffrey M Yau
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...
- Analogous intermediate shape coding in vision and touchJeffrey 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...
- A tactile stimulator for studying passive shape perceptionJohn 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...
