Receptive fields of cat retinal ganglion cells were stimulated by a drifting, sinusoidal luminance pattern of fixed contrast. The amplitudes and phases of the harmonic components in the response were determined as a function of spatial frequency. For most cells, the graphs of response vs spatial frequency (when plotted on linear scales) were unimodal and skewed towards zero frequency for all stimulus orientations. However, some cells had bimodal frequency response functions when the stimulus… CONTINUE READING
