We tested color and contrast sensitivity in the magnocellular and parvocellular subdivisions of the lateral geniculate body and in layers 2, 3, 4B, and 4C alpha of visual area 1 to obtain physiological data on the degree of segregation of the 2 pathways and on the fate of the color and contrast information as it is transmitted from the geniculate to the cortex. On average, magnocellular geniculate cells were much less responsive than parvocellular cells to shifts between 2 equiluminant colors… CONTINUE READING
