This paper, by former PI D.E. Angelaki, was highlighted in a 'News and Views' by S. Bennur and J.I. Gold entitled "Right way neurons." A summary of the 'News and Views' from the TOC: "The visual and vestibular systems encode different, but complementary, aspects of self motion. A study in this issue sheds light on how the brain combines cues from these disparate sources, which are encoded by single neurons in the monkey extrastriate visual cortex, to support the perception of heading direction."
