A class of direction-selective (DS) units, histologically localized within the nucleus of the optic tract (NOT) was isolated in the rabbit's pretectum. These units typically had a maintained discharge of 25-50 action potentials/sec and large receptive fields (up to 40 X 150 degrees) in the visual streak area of the contralateral eye. They were excited by a visual pattern moving in one direction and inhibited by motion in the opposite direction. The reactions were sustained. Excitatory and… CONTINUE READING
