We have studied the properties of neurones in the lateral geniculate nucleus (l.g.n.) of Old World monkeys, both in mature animals and throughout post-natal development. Cells were classified as X (linear) or Y (non-linear) on the basis of their responses to contrast-reversing achromatic gratings ('null position test'). In older animals virtually all parvocellular neurones and the majority of magnocellular units were X cells; only about 15% of magnocellular neurones displayed highly non-linear… CONTINUE READING
