Eye movement related potentials were recorded bilaterally from the lateral geniculate body and visual cortex in five cats during REM sleep and waking. During REM sleep polygraphic recordings showed that these potentials have significantly greater amplitudes (primary waves) in the visual cortex and lateral geniculate body ipsilateral to the direction of the corresponding rapid eye movements. This amplitude difference was seen as a mean increase of 38.2% over the contralateral side and was found… CONTINUE READING
