1. A survey of the properties of retinal ganglion cells in the central part of the rabbit retina has been carried out.2. The five types of unit previously encountered in the peripheral retina were also found in the central region. Their receptive fields were smaller, and tended to be oval-shaped with the long axis horizontal.3. In addition, three new types were discovered: orientation-selective cells, local-edge-detectors, uniformity-detectors.4. Orientation-selective cells were sensitive to… CONTINUE READING
