We investigated responses of neurones in cortical areas 17 and 18 and in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) of the cat to a phase shift in a moving line pattern forming a border without a luminance gradient (“subjective contour”). In both areas 17 and 18, S cells and B cells respond only slightly or not at all along the phase shift while C cells respond strongly. The response of C cells is strongest for line patterns with medium line separation and decreases with smaller and larger… CONTINUE READING
