In acute experiments on immobilized cats orientation tuning of 40 neurons in the primary visual cortex (field 17) has been studied before and after nembutal injection. It was found that the preferred orientation (PO) of half of neurons remained constant after injection, while another half of neurons revealed a reliable shift of PO (by 53.6 +/- 8.0 degrees on the average) during 1 min-3 hours. Neurons with constant PO preferred horizontal and vertical orientations more often, while neurons with… CONTINUE READING
