This is an unadulterated recording of brain activity in area MT of the marmoset monkey from a 10×10 multi-electrode array. The plot was produced as part of our routine analysis, examining motion direction tuning of the recorded neural population in this motion processing area of the brain. As the presented visual motion (colour groups) changes, different population of neurons (vertically aligned dots) sing their note – some more in tune than others (larger dots).
