    Center for Perceptual Systems, Neurobiology, Psychology, The University of Texas at Austin, TX 78712, United States
    Vision Res 62:173-80. 2012
    ..In addition to providing a fresh perspective on how successive stages of visual processing might be approached, multiplexing also raises caveats about the value of "neural correlates" for understanding neural computation...

    Alexander C Huk
    Center for Perceptual Systems, Department of Psychology, University of Texas, Austin, Texas 78712, USA

    Neurobiology and Center for Perceptual Systems, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX 78715, USA
    Curr Biol 18:R1005-7. 2008

    Thaddeus B Czuba
    The University of Texas at Austin, Section of Neurobiology, Center for Perceptual Systems, Department of Psychology, Austin, TX 78712, USA
    J Neurophysiol 104:2886-99. 2010
    ..These results suggest that for direction discrimination outside the fovea, 3D motion perception primarily relies on the velocity-based cue with little, if any, contribution from the disparity-based cue...

    Psychology Department, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305 2130, USA
    Nat Neurosci 5:72-5. 2002
    ..Reducing the perceptual coherence of the plaids yielded a corresponding decrease in pattern-motion responsivity, providing evidence that percepts of coherent motion are closely linked to the activity of pattern-motion cells in human MT+...
