A variety of psychophysical and neurophysiological studies suggest that chromatic motion perception in the primate brain may be performed outside the classical motion processing pathway. We addressed this provocative proposal directly by assessing the sensitivity of neurons in motion area MT to moving colored stimuli while simultaneously determining perceptual sensitivity in nonhuman primate observers. The results of these studies demonstrate a strong correspondence between neuronal and perceptual measures. Our findings testify that area MT is indeed a principal component of the neuronal substrate for color-based motion processing.
