Small, round photocoagulator lesions of 3-6 degrees (0.6-1.2 mm) diameter were placed nasally on the retina of adult cats. Histological controls proved the complete destruction of all retinal layers within the lesions. Changes in lesion size by shrinkage of the retinal scar did not exceed 0.1 mm or 0.5 degrees. At different times after photocoagulation,(More)
Late spreading of excitation occurs in the lateral geniculate nucleus following partial retinal lesions. The extent of spreading remained the same when reducing the size of the lesions to one fifth. This is incompatible with the idea that the spreading could be caused by displacement of normal cells into the deafferented area as a consequence of(More)
Layers of the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of mature cats were completely or partially deafferentated by precisely defined photocoagulation of the retina. Single neuron recordings were performed with microelectrodes from an experimentally modified layer and compared with neurons from a normally innervated layer in the same animal. The spontaneous(More)
