Research Grants & Projects

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology: Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(特定領域研究)
Project Year: 2005 - 2009    Investigator(s): Kenji KAWANO
To investigate the neural mechanism that enables us to determine whether the image motion on the retina is genuine or self-induced, we recorded single neurons in the middle temporal (MT) and medial superior temporal (MST) areas in behaving monkeys...
