A FUNDAMENTAL step in visual pattern recognition is the establishment of relations between spatially separate features. Recently, we have shown that neurons in the cat visual cortex have oscillatory responses in the range 40–60 Hz (refs 1,2) which occur in synchrony for cells in a functional column and are tightly correlated with a local oscillatory field potential. This led us to hypothesize that the synchronization of oscillatory responses of spatially distributed, feature selective cells… Expand
Oscillatory Neuronal Responses in the Visual Cortex of the Awake Macaque Monkey
TLDR
This work finds in the caudal superior temporal sulcus of the macaque monkey (Macaca fascicularis) that adjacent neurons can synchronize their responses, in which case their discharges exhibit an oscillatory temporal structure. Expand
Stimulus-Specific Synchronizations in the Visual Cortex: Linking of Local Features Into Global Figures?
TLDR
The results suggest that the stimulus-induced oscillations of those neural groups become synchronized, which represent the features to be linked in the current visual situation. Expand
Squint Affects Synchronization of Oscillatory Responses in Cat Visual Cortex
TLDR
The results support the notion that response synchronization is achieved by cortico‐cortical connections and serves as a mechanism for feature binding in the visual cortex of strabismic cats. Expand

Stimulus-Specific Synchronization in Cat Visual Cortex and Its Possible Role in Visual Pattern Recognition
TLDR
It is proposed that two types of neural synchronization play a role for the definition of feature relations in a current visual situation: Stimulus-forced (single-shot) synchronizations that are strongly phase-locked to transients in the visual input signals, and stimulus-induced (repetitive) synchronization that are not phase- Locked to the stimulus.

Binding by temporal structure in multiple feature domains of an oscillatory neuronal network
TLDR
This study examines the formation and segregation of cell assemblies by synchronizing and desynchronizing connections within a single feature module, and addresses the principal problem of segregating assemblies representing spatially overlapping stimuli in a distributed architecture. Expand
Stimulus-Dependent Assembly Formation of Oscillatory Responses: I. Synchronization
TLDR
A delayed nonlinear oscillator is introduced to investigate temporal coding in neuronal networks and synchronization within two-dimensional layers consisting of oscillatory elements coupled by excitatory delay connections is shown. Expand

Inhibition contributes to orientation selectivity in visual cortex of cat
TLDR
Using cross-correlation analysis of the activities of two neurons recorded simultaneously, it is found that inhibitory interactions exist between cells with somewhat different, but not orthogonal, orientation preferences, which suggests that intracortical horizontal inhibition operates between 'orientation columns' to sharpen the orientation tuning of cortical neurons.

TLDR
It is found that individual neurons in the cat primary visual cortex can communicate over suprisingly long distances horizontally, in directions parallel to the cortical surface, by combining the techniques of intracellular recording and injection of horseradish peroxidase with three- dimensional computer graphic reconstructions.

It is suggested that axons linking cells with similar orientation preferences and make their connections within a narrow strip of cortex whose direction is related to the orientation of the cells in question could be involved in generating complex receptive fields from simple ones. Expand
