Single optic tract fibers in the cat were classified as X or Y cells by a contrast reversal stimulus. A slit of light was then moved across the receptive field at velocities from 10–1000 ° /s. The preferred velocity was that velocity which elicited the strongest response from the cell. The maximum velocity was the highest velocity target to which a cell(More)
The spatial distribution of the surround's adaptation mechanism was studied in X-and Y-cells in the cat's retina. Adaptive sensitivity was assessed with adapting annuli with equal-area, but variable position and with adapting annuli with variable size. The results provide evidence that adaptive sensitivity of the surround's adaptive mechanism is higher in(More)
