Motion processing in the primate dorsal stream

Short summary: In this talk I will present the dorsal stream of primates as a model system for understanding rich aspects of sensorimotor integration and neural coding. Building off classic work that has characterized the encoding of frontoparallel visual motion underlying the perception of simple forms off motion, I will describe our work attempting to learn more about how the brain extracts 3-dimentional velocities, forms perceptual decisions, and how it functions in free-viewing contexts that do not require training or conventional threshold-level tasks.
