Motion perception plays an important role in everyday life. The investigation of the neural mechanisms underlying the distinguishing of the direction of motion has broadly expanded our understanding of the neural mechanisms of not only visual motion processing but also how integration of visual information is linked with intentional behavior. The lateral intraparietal (LIP) cortex is a crucial area involved in perceptual decision making and oculomotor planning. Here, I have reviewed the neural mechanisms underlying visual motion processing and describe how intentional behavior results from motion information.
