Previous evidence concerning the physiological cell classes in the medial interlaminar nucleus (MIN) has been conflicting. We reexamined the MIN using standard functional tests to distinguish X-, Y- and W-cells. Discharge patterns to flashing spots also were used to identify some cells as lagged or nonlagged, as previously done for the geniculate A-layers. Also, each cell's response timing (latency and absolute phase) was measured from discharges to a spot undergoing sinusoidal luminance… CONTINUE READING
