Lorteije, J. A., Jellema, T., Raemaekers, M., Duijnhouwer, J., Barraclough, N. E., Xiao, D., …van Wezel, R. J. (2011). Implied Motion Activation in Cortical Area MT Can Be Explained by Visual Low-level Features. Journal of cognitive neuroscience, 23(6), (1533-1548). doi:10.1162/jocn.2010.21533. ISSN 0898-929X

To investigate form-related activity inmotion-sensitive cortical areas, we recorded cell responses to animate implied motion in macaque middle temporal (MT) and medial superior temporal (MST) cortex and investigated these areas using fMRI in humans.... Read More

Visual aftereffects for walking actions reveal underlying neural mechanisms for action recognition (2010)
Journal Article
Barraclough, N., & Jellema, T. (2011). Visual aftereffects for walking actions reveal underlying neural mechanisms for action recognition. Psychological science : a journal of the American Psychological Society / APS, 22(1), 87-94. doi:10.1177/0956797610391910

The results of this study illustrate a new high-level visual aftereffect: Observing actors walking forward, without horizontal translation, makes subsequent actors appear to walk backward, and the opposite effect is obtained after observing backward... Read More
