  • Previous ablation studies have suggested that area 19 of the cat plays an important role in pattern discrimination. To clarify the functional roles unique to area 19, we studied the receptive-field properties of cells in area 19 and compared them with those of cells in area 17. Recordings were made of anesthetized and immobilized animals. The majority (72%) of the cells in area 17 responded maximally to an elongated bar at a particular orientation, while they responded only weakly or not at all… CONTINUE READING
