IN THE NORMAL CAT OR KITTEN about four-fifths of cells in the striate cortex can be driven by both eyes (3, 4). If, however, one eye of a newborn kitten is sewn shut and the visual cortex recorded from 3 months later, only a small fraction of cells can be driven from the deprived eye (8) . In contrast, many cells in the latera .I geniculate are driven normally from the d ,eprived eye (7 ), suggesting that the abnormality occurs somewhere between geniculate cells and cortex.
