The configuration and width of on- and off-response zones in the discharge field of single cells in cat striate cortex was analysed by quantitative methods. The responses across on- and off-zones were plotted for 321 cells with a stationary optimum oriented light slit. The cells fell into two completely distinct subgroups with respect to the degree of overlap between adjacent on- and off-zones. The simple cells had a mean overlap of 16.8%, the complex cells 94.5%. For simple cells the ratio… CONTINUE READING
