    Chris I Baker
    Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, Mellon Institute, USA
    Psychol Sci 15:460-6. 2004
    ..It can be modulated by both attention and connectedness, and in natural scenes these factors may constrain the role of stimulus statistics in learning...
  2. ncbi request reprint Reorganization of visual processing in macular degeneration
    Chris I Baker
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research and Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 25:614-8. 2005
    ..These results demonstrate large-scale reorganization of visual processing in MD and will likely prove important in any effort to develop new strategies for rehabilitation of MD subjects...
  3. pmc Reorganization of visual processing in macular degeneration is not specific to the "preferred retinal locus"
    Daniel D Dilks
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 29:2768-73. 2009
    ..This finding suggests that reorganization is driven by passive, not use-dependent mechanisms...
  4. pmc Feedback of visual object information to foveal retinotopic cortex
    Mark A Williams
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    Nat Neurosci 11:1439-45. 2008
    ..Instead, our findings indicate that position-invariant object information from higher cortical areas is fed back to foveal retinotopic cortex, enhancing task performance...
  5. pmc "Referred visual sensations": rapid perceptual elongation after visual cortical deprivation
    Daniel D Dilks
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 29:8960-4. 2009
    ..These findings may shed light on other reported perceptual distortions, as well as the phenomena of "filling-in."..

    Hans P Op de Beeck
    McGovern Institute for Brain Research and Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 26:13025-36. 2006

    Rebecca F Schwarzlose
    Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 25:11055-9. 2005

    Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    J Neurophysiol 100:753-62. 2008
