The neural signals in visual cortex associated with positional disparity and contrast texture correlation of binocular images are the subject of this study. We have analyzed the effects of stereoscopically presented luminous bars and of dynamic random-dot patterns on the activity of single neurons in cortical visual areas V1, V2, and V3-V3A of the alert,(More)
We present a tractable model of state-dependent pricing and study price adjustment in response to shocks. We find a distinct asymmetry in this response. Positive shocks to marginal cost generate greater price flexibility than negative shocks of the same magnitude. This asymmetry arises from a strategic linkage between firms in the incentive to adjust(More)
The progressive frontalization of both eyes in mammals causes overlap of the left and right visual fields, having as a consequence a region of binocular field with single vision and stereopsis. The horizontal separation of the eyes makes the retinal images of the objects lying in this binocular field have slight horizontal and vertical differences, termed(More)
In this chapter, we review the recent literature on conflict and appropriation. Allowing for the possibility of conflict, which amounts to recognizing the possibility that property rights are not perfectly and costlessly enforced, represents a significant departure from the traditional paradigm of economics. The research we emphasize, however, takes an(More)
This paper presents results obtained from experiments performed on two behaving monkeys (Macaca mulatta) viewing correlated and uncorrelated dynamic random dot stereograms. Extracellular single unit activity was recorded from areas V1 and V2. We found that cells sensitive to correlated stereograms (38%) were also sensitive to uncorrelated stereograms.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of dorzolamide on ocular blood flow in normal and glaucomatous eyes. METHODS Twenty-six eyes with documented open-angle glaucoma of 26 patients and 13 normal control eyes of 8 age-matched subjects were included in this study. All eyes underwent color Doppler imaging for measuring peak-systolic velocity, end-diastolic(More)
PURPOSE Disparity sensitivity may be explained by interocular positional differences of the receptive fields (RF) of visual cortical cells or by interocular shifts of the On and Off RF subregions. Since this latter model assumes shifts are orthogonal to the orientation of the RF, cells with disparity sensitivity should be oriented. The objective of the(More)
Focal blockade of restricted regions in layer V of area 18 was used to assess the contribution of this region to the responses to high-velocity stimuli of cells in retinotopically matched, layer V in area 17. In 40% of cases, blockade within area 18 revealed responses of area 17 cells to high-velocity stimuli to which they previously showed only poor(More)
Because of the horizontal separation of both ocular globes, the projection angles are slightly different. These differences are commonly termed retinal disparities. Vertical and horizontal retinal disparities occur constantly in normal life. We have investigated the responses of single cells in cortical areas V1 and V2 of behaving Macaca mulatta monkeys to(More)
