Concurrent TMS-fMRI and psychophysics reveal frontal influences on human retinotopic visual cortex


Ruff, Christian C; Blankenburg, F; Bjoertomt, O; Bestmann, S; Freeman, E; Haynes, J-D; Rees, G; Josephs, O; Deichmann, R; Driver, J (2006). Concurrent TMS-fMRI and psychophysics reveal frontal influences on human retinotopic visual cortex. Current Biology, 16(15):1479-1488.

Abstract

Our results provide causal evidence that circuits originating in the human FEF can modulate activity in retinotopic visual cortex, in a manner that differentiates the central and peripheral visual field, with functional consequences for perception. More generally, our study illustrates how the new approach of concurrent TMS-fMRI can now reveal causal interactions between remote but interconnected areas of the human brain.
