Nature and precision of temporal coding in visual cortex: a metric-space analysis.
1. We recorded single-unit and multi-unit activity in response to transient presentation of texture and grating patterns at 25 sites within the parafoveal representation of V1, V2, and V3 of twoExpand

The effect of contrast on the transfer properties of cat retinal ganglion cells.
1. Variation in stimulus contrast produces a marked effect on the dynamics of the cat retina. This contrast effect was investigated by measurement of the responses of X and Y ganglion cells. TheExpand

Independent and Redundant Information in Nearby Cortical Neurons
In the primary visual cortex (V1), nearby neurons are tuned to similar stimulus features, and, depending on the manner and time scale over which neuronal signals are analyzed, the resultingExpand

Temporal coding of contrast in primary visual cortex: when, what, and why.
How do neurons in the primary visual cortex (V1) encode the contrast of a visual stimulus? In this paper, the information that V1 responses convey about the contrast of static visual stimuli isExpand

A method of nonlinear analysis in the frequency domain.
A method is developed for the analysis of nonlinear biological systems based on an input temporal signal that consists of a sum of a large number of sinusoids. Nonlinear properties of the system areExpand

The use of m-sequences in the analysis of visual neurons: linear receptive field properties.
We have used Sutter's (1987) spatiotemporal m-sequence method to map the receptive fields of neurons in the visual system of the cat. The stimulus consisted of a grid of 16 x 16 square regions, eachExpand
