Visual processing of words in a patient with visual form agnosia: A behavioural and fMRI study (2014)
Journal Article
Large, M., Cavina-Pratesi, C., & Milner, A. D. (2015). Visual processing of words in a patient with visual form agnosia: A behavioural and fMRI study. Cortex; a journal devoted to the study of the nervous system and behavior, 64(March), (29-46). doi:10.1016/j.cortex.2014.09.017. ISSN 0010-9452

Patient D.F. has a profound and enduring visual form agnosia due to a carbon monoxide poisoning episode suffered in 1988. Her inability to distinguish simple geometric shapes or single alphanumeric characters can be attributed to a bilateral loss of... Read More

The role of temporal synchrony as a binding cue for visual persistence in early visual areas: An fMRI study (2009)
Journal Article
Wong, Y. J., Aldcroft, A. J., Large, M., Culham, J. C., & Vilis, T. (2009). The role of temporal synchrony as a binding cue for visual persistence in early visual areas: An fMRI study. Journal of Neurophysiology, 102(6), 3461-3468. doi:10.1152/jn.00243.2009

We examined the role of temporal synchrony - the simultaneous appearance of visual features - in the perceptual and neural processes underlying object persistence. When a binding cue (such as color or motion) momentarily exposes an object from a back... Read More

Dissociable neural mechanisms for determining the perceived heaviness of objects and the predicted weight of objects during lifting: An fMRI investigation of the size-weight illusion (2008)
Journal Article
Large, M., Chang, E. C., Chouinard, P. A., & Goodale, M. A. (2008). Dissociable neural mechanisms for determining the perceived heaviness of objects and the predicted weight of objects during lifting: An fMRI investigation of the size-weight illusion. NeuroImage, 44(1), 200-212. doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2008.08.023

In size-weight (SW) illusions, people learn to scale their fingertip forces for lifting small and big objects of equal weight even though they fail to learn perceptually that both objects have the same weight. The question then arises as to what the... Read More

fMRI reveals greater within- than between-hemifield integration in the human lateral occipital cortex (2008)
Journal Article
Large, M., Aldcroft, A., Culham, J., Kuchinad, A., & Vilis, T. (2008). fMRI reveals greater within- than between-hemifield integration in the human lateral occipital cortex. The European journal of neuroscience, 27(12), 3299-3309. doi:10.1111/j.1460-9568.2008.06270.x

Early visual areas within each hemisphere (V1, V2, V3/VP, V4v) contain distinct representations of the upper and lower quadrants of the contralateral hemifield. As receptive field size increases, the retinotopy in higher-tier visual areas becomes pro... Read More

The neural correlates of change detection in the face perception network (2008)
Journal Article
Large, M., Cavina-Pratesi, C., Vilis, T., & Culham, J. C. (2008). The neural correlates of change detection in the face perception network. Neuropsychologia, 46(8), (2169-2176). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2008.02.027. ISSN 0028-3932

A common view is that visual processing within the ventral visual stream is modulated by attention and awareness. We used fMRI adaptation to investigate whether activation in a network of brain regions involved with face recognition - namely the fusi... Read More

The fate of unseen faces: an fMRI investigation of awareness in the face perception network (2007)
Journal Article
Large, M. (2007). The fate of unseen faces: an fMRI investigation of awareness in the face perception network. Perception, 36(ECVP Abstract Supplement), (110 - 110). ISSN 0301-0066

A common view is that visual processing within the ventral visual stream is modulated by attention and awareness. We used fMRI adaptation to investigate whether activation in a network of brain regions involved with face recognition--the fusiform fac... Read More
