The responses of adjacent neurons in inferior temporal (IT) cortex carry signals that are to a large degree independent (Gawne and Richmond, 1993). Adjacent primary visual cortical neurons have similar orientation tuning (Hubel and Wiesel, 1962, 1968), suggesting that their responses might be more redundant than those in IT. We recorded the responses of 26 pairs of adjacent complex cells in the primary visual cortex of two awake monkeys while using both a set of 16 bar-like stimuli, and a more… CONTINUE READING
