Evidence for two distinct nonlinear components in the human pattern ERG
Orientation characteristics of a mechanism in the human visual system sensitive to cyclopean form
Spatial frequency masking with the sweep-VEP
The comparability of rat and human visual-evoked potentials
Orientation tuning in the visual cortex of 3-month-old human infants
Normalization Models Applied to Orientation Masking in the Human Infant
TLDR
Results are consistent with the existence of oriented filters early in life the responses of which are normalized immaturely until ∼5 months of age, within the context of a normalization model of pattern masking.

TLDR
This paper notes that psychophysical studies of patients with brain lesions show that motion-defined form and luminance- defined form are processed separately and describes how magnetic (MEG) or electrical (VEP) recording can be used to compare brain responses to Luminance-defined forms.

A complex-cell receptive-field model.
TLDR
This model may be used as a working hypothesis for the analysis of these aspects of the various cortical receptive-field types as well as for the tests for the responses it predicts for the application of counterphase-grating stimulation.
Lateral inhibition between spatially adjacent spatial-frequency channels?
A new lateral inhibitory phenomenon is suggested between spatially neighboring channels that detect similar spatial frequencies. This mechanism tends to enhance the apparent contrast of gratings at
SOME NEW METHODS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF LATERAL INTERACTIONS THAT INFLUENCE THE VISUAL EVOKED POTENTIAL *
TLDR
New methods of generating and displaying a wide variety of two-dimensional patterns that can be varied in both space and time are described and new applications are discussed in the analysis of the influence of lateral interactions on the visual evoked potential.
Nonlinear analysis of cat retinal ganglion cells in the frequency domain.
TLDR
The responses of cat retinal ganglion cells to luminosity gratings that are modulated in time by a sum of sinusoids are analyzed to provide strong constraints on prospective models for the nonlinear pathway of the Y cell.

TLDR
It will be shown that these counter-examples are not independent of each other, but can be described by two elementary units; bars (line segments) and their terminators, which means the preattentive texture perception system can count the number of terminators but ignores their positions.
The nonlinear pathway of Y ganglion cells in the cat retina
TLDR
The functional connectivity in this pathway is analyzed here by comparing the observed second-order frequency responses of Y cells with predictions of a "sandwich model" in which a static nonlinear stage is sandwiched between two linear filters.
New results in the calculation of modulation products
A new method of computing modulation products by means of multiple Fourier series is described. The method is used to obtain for the problem of modulation of a two-frequency wave by a rectifier a
