Ferrets as a Model for Higher-Level Visual Motion Processing

Augusto A. Lempel, Kristina J. Nielsen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


Ferrets are a major animal model for development of early visual stages. Lempel and Nielsen establish signatures of complex motion processing in a higher visual area in the ferret, area PSS. This will allow developmental research in the ferret to expand into higher-level vision.
