Spiral and translation stimuli were used to investigate the response properties of cat AMLS (anteromedial lateral suprasylvian area) neurons to optic flow. The overwhelming majority of cells could be significantly excited by the two modes of stimuli and most responsive cells displayed obvious direction selectivity. It is the first time to find a visual area(More)
Directional and orientational components usually coexist and are mixed in the cell's overall responses when moving optical stimuli are used to study the response characteristics of visual neurons. While these two properties were quantified with all the previous methods for data analysis, their effects could not be efficiently separated from each other, and(More)
The histochemical method was used to investigate the postnatal development of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase (NADPH-d) -positive neurons in retinas of the golden hamster. NADPH-d-positive neurons were discernible in the retina at postnatal day (P)1. From P4 onward to adulthood, when the retina acquired its laminated characteristics,(More)

KF. Postnatal development of NADPH-diaphorase expression in the visual cortex of the golden hamster. Abstract Nitric oxide is an important neuromodulator in the brain and is involved in the development of visual system. But it is not clear how nitric oxide and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) are involved in the developing visual cortex of rodents. Thus we(More)

Single neurons in the dorsal lateral suprasylvian cortex (DLS) of the cat were tested with large field optic flow stimuli simulating translation and spiral motion (including radiation and rotation) in different directions. Most cells were responsive to both kinds of movement with fairly good direction selectivity. Generally, the responses were better to(More)
Changes in neuronal spontaneous activities after prolonged optic flow stimulation (using the three basic flow modes: translation, radiation and rotation) were inve s-tigated by extracellular single-unit recording in cortical area PMLS of the cat. The results showed that the evoked responses decreased with the prolongation of visual stimuli, and the(More)

For human beings and animals, the observer encounters the so-called optic flow during locomotion, the image motion pattern of the environment on the retina, which includes three basic modes of motion: rotation, expansion/contraction and translation. The analysis of optic flow information is vital for determining the direction and velocity of locomotion and(More)
