The oblique effect is a ubiquitous visual psychological effect. To explore its underlying neural basis, we quantitatively analyzed the proportion and response amplitude of the cardinal preferred areas and the oblique preferred areas in a fairly large region of the primary visual cortex of cats, using optical imaging based on intrinsic signals. The results show that cardinal preferred areas were larger than oblique preferred areas, with a mean difference of 4.7%. Overall, the responses evoked by… CONTINUE READING
