Visual motion signals generated by or own movement or by the movement of external objects provide us with a rich source of information that helps us orientate ourselves within our surroundings and allows us to segment and avoid obstacles that litter our visual environment. Our work focusses on the examination of the different functional roles played by multiple cortical areas responsive to motion (V3A, hV5/MT+). To this end, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) combined with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to examine the contributions these areas have to the perception of different attributes of moving optic flow stimuli.
