Immediately after focal retinal lesions, receptive fields (RFs) in primary visual cortex expand considerably, even when the retinal damage is limited to the photoreceptor layer. The time course of these changes suggests that mere lack of stimulation in the vicinity of the RF accompanied by stimulation in the surrounding region causes the RF expansion. While recording from single cells in cat area 17, we simulated this pattern of stimulation with a pattern of moving lines in the visual field… CONTINUE READING
