Predicting what we'll see

Neurobiologists in Georg Keller's group at the FMI have identified a neuronal circuit in cortex that integrates signals from movement with visual input: a projection from the motor areas of cortex to the visual cortex conveys predictions of visual flow based on movement. Neural activity in this projection adapts as mice learn to navigate a left-right inverted virtual maze; and artificial activation of the projection creates an illusory visual flow, influencing the mice?s motor behavior.
