Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex
What chiefly distinguishes cerebral cortex from other parts of the central nervous system is the great diversity of its cell types and interconnexions. It would be astonishing if such a structure did… Expand
Receptive fields and functional architecture of monkey striate cortex
1. The striate cortex was studied in lightly anaesthetized macaque and spider monkeys by recording extracellularly from single units and stimulating the retinas with spots or patterns of light. Most… Expand
Receptive fields of single neurones in the cat's striate cortex
In the central nervous system the visual pathway from retina to striate cortex provides an opportunity to observe and compare single unit responses at several distinct levels. Patterns of light… Expand
SINGLE-CELL RESPONSES IN STRIATE CORTEX OF KITTENS DEPRIVED OF VISION IN ONE EYE.
The period of susceptibility to the physiological effects of unilateral eye closure in kittens
1. Kittens were visually deprived by suturing the lids of the right eye for various periods of time at different ages. Recordings were subsequently made from the striate cortex, and responses from… Expand
Spatial and chromatic interactions in the lateral geniculate body of the rhesus monkey.
THE RECEPTORS AND NERVE CELLS that make up the visual pathway must convey and interpret information on both the form and the color of retinal images. In higher mammals little is known about the… Expand
Uniformity of monkey striate cortex: A parallel relationship between field size, scatter, and magnification factor
This paper is concerned with the relationship between orientation columns, ocular‐dominance columns, the topographic mapping of visual fields onto cortex, and receptive‐field size and scatter.… Expand
RECEPTIVE FIELDS AND FUNCTIONAL ARCHITECTURE IN TWO NONSTRIATE VISUAL AREAS (18 AND 19) OF THE CAT.
To UNDERSTAND VISION in physiological terms represents a formidable problem for the biologist. Expand
Columnar specificity of intrinsic horizontal and corticocortical connections in cat visual cortex
A prominent and stereotypical feature of cortical circuitry in the striate cortex is a plexus of long-range horizontal connections, running for 6–8 mm parallel to the cortical surface, which has a… Expand

Ocular dominance columns were examined by a variety of techniques in juvenile macaque monkeys in which one eye had been removed or sutured closed soon after birth. In two monkeys the removal was done… Expand
