  author={Ralph D. Freeman and John D. Pettigrew},
Wiesel and Hubel have shown that if normal simultaneous binocular vision is prevented during a period when an animal is particularly sensitive to the nature of its visual input, substantial changes can occur in the visual system1–3. A dramatic extension of the influence of visual deprivation was made a few years ago. Kittens were reared viewing contours of a given orientation, and physiological studies showed that their visual cortical neurones had become tuned to the orientation they had… CONTINUE READING
