Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex
What chiefly distinguishes cerebral cortex from other parts of the central nervous system is the great diversity of its cell types and inter-connexions. It would be astonishing if such a structureExpand

Receptive fields and functional architecture of monkey striate cortex
1. The striate cortex was studied in lightly anaesthetized macaque and spider monkeys by recording extracellularly from single units and stimulating the retinas with spots or patterns of light. MostExpand

Receptive fields of single neurones in the cat's striate cortex
In the central nervous system the visual pathway from retina to striate cortex provides an opportunity to observe and compare single unit responses at several distinct levels. Patterns of lightExpand

Segregation of form, color, movement, and depth: anatomy, physiology, and perception.
Anatomical and physiological observations in monkeys indicate that the primate visual system consists of several separate and independent subdivisions that analyze different aspects of the sameExpand

Anatomy and physiology of a color system in the primate visual cortex
Staining for the mitochondrial enzyme cytochrome oxidase reveals an array of dense regions (blobs) in the primate primary visual cortex. They are most obvious in the upper layers, 2 and 3, but canExpand

The period of susceptibility to the physiological effects of unilateral eye closure in kittens
1. Kittens were visually deprived by suturing the lids of the right eye for various periods of time at different ages. Recordings were subsequently made from the striate cortex, and responses fromExpand

Spatial and chromatic interactions in the lateral geniculate body of the rhesus monkey.
THE RECEPTORS AND NERVE CELLS that make up the visual pathway must convey and interpret information on both the form and the color of retinal images. In higher mammals little is known about theExpand

This paper is concerned with the relationship between orientation columns, ocular‐dominance columns, the topographic mapping of visual fields onto cortex, and receptive‐field size and scatter.Expand

RECEPTIVE FIELDS AND FUNCTIONAL ARCHITECTURE IN TWO NONSTRIATE VISUAL AREAS (18 AND 19) OF THE CAT.
To UNDERSTAND VISION in physiological terms represents a formidable problem for the biologist. I t am0 unts to learning how the nervous system handles incoming messages so that form, color, movement,Expand
