Abstract

Huang et al. in this issue of Neuron show that primate area MT neurons exploit contextual cues to adequately interpret motion information. MT neurons switch from segmentation to integration when motion arises from single rather than multiple objects. This switching may help solve the aperture problem and bind distant object components into a perceptual whole. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
