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
Two-frequency analysis of interactions elicited by Vernier stimuli
TLDR
For Vernier stimuli devoid of motion, VEP signatures of interaction are readily detected but are not specific to hyperacuity displacements, and the distribution of interactions across harmonic orders is consistent with local rectification preceding the spatial interactions.
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.

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.

TLDR
This work improved identification and localization of lateral interactions by differentially modulating small neighboring parts of a "windmill-dartboard" stimulus pattern-a central disc surrounded by three contiguous annuli, all radially divided into light and dark segments.
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.
