This chapter reviews neurobiological correlates of visual pattern masking at cortical levels in primates. A first part is devoted to evidence from animal studies. The review includes investigations of metacontrast and pattern masking in area V1, para- and metacontrast in area V4, backward pattern masking in frontal eye field and in temporal cortex. The second part of the chapter reviews evidence from human studies and includes discussions of studies using the Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) and the functional magnetic resonance (fMRI) techniques.

Keywords:   neurobiological correlates, masking in V1, masking in V4, frontal eye field, VEP correlates, fMRI correlates
