In adult cats, after section of extraocular muscle proprioceptive (EOMP) afferents during the 'critical period', most cortical area 17 cells loose their ability to discriminate changes in binocular spatial disparity. After unilateral section this loss depends on whether or not cortical cells modulate their responses to the presentation of sinusoidal(More)
1. Neural correlates of the permanent deficits in depth perception that occur when extraocular muscle proprioceptive (EMP) afferents are interrupted unilaterally in kittens were investigated by performing extracellular recordings in the primary visual cortex (area 17) in adulthood. Unilateral section of the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve (V1(More)
In response to a visual stimulation, "replicated triplets" of impulses may appear in many spike trains recorded from the cat dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN). The number and the temporal structure of these triplets depend upon the general organization of the geniculate impulse trains. In this study, we show that a pharmacological blockade of the(More)
In a previous study, extraocular muscle proprioception (E.O.M.P.) was shown to play an important role in the postnatal development of depth perception: following unilateral or bilateral sections of the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve (V1th nerve) performed at 6-8 weeks of age, the binocular thresholds were 2 to 3 times higher than in control(More)
