Correlates of transsaccadic integration in the primary visual cortex of the monkey.

ABSTRACT: We make several eye movements per second when we explore a visual scene. Each eye movement sweeps the scene's projection across the retina and changes its representation in retinotopic areas of the visual cortex, but we nevertheless perceive a stable world. Here we investigate the neuronal correlates of visual stability in the primary visual cortex. Monkeys were trained to make two saccades along a single curve and to ignore another, distracting curve. Attention enhanced neuronal responses to the entire relevant curve before the first saccade. This response enhancement was rapidly reestablished after the saccade, although the image was shifted across the primary visual cortex. We argue that this fast postsaccadic restoration of the attentional response enhancement contributes to the stability of vision across eye movements, and reduces the impact of saccades on visual cognition.
