1. We have examined the effects of iontophoresing specific antagonists to excitatory amino acid receptors on the visual responses of cells in lamina A or A1 of the cat's lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). 2. Cells were classified as On- or Off-center, X or Y, and lagged or nonlagged. The effects of antagonists were studied while cells were stimulated with spots of the appropriate contrast covering the receptive-field center. 3. The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists D-2-amino-5… CONTINUE READING
