1. Extracellular recordings from 304 neurons were obtained with carbon fiber-containing multibarrel micropipettes. The cells were isolated in the insula in cats anesthetized with barbiturate and immobilized with gallamine triethiodide. Cells were tested with visual stimuli in the form of bars of light, moving edges, and square-wave, drifting grating patterns. 2. The spatial extent of the visually responsive region of insular cortex was assessed and was found to be limited to a surface area of… CONTINUE READING
