We studied the effect of noise on visual pattern recognition while we recorded from 26 lateral TE neurons in a monkey performing a sequential delayed match-to-sample task using 8 black and white 2-dimensional patterns. To add noise, we reversed the contrast of the pixel dots with probabilities of 5-25%. Above 5% noise, the reaction time to bar release to the matching stimulus increased. Although...
