The physiological properties of neurons in the medial bank of the anterior suprasylvian sulcus (ASSS-m) of the cat's cortex were studied using unit recording techniques. Receptive fields (RFs) on the face are represented in the most rostral aspects of the ASSS-m. Of these neurons, 84% responded to light touch of the skin on the contralateral region of the… CONTINUE READING
