Orientation sensitivity is a characteristic of most retinal ganglion cells (Levick and Thibos, '82), most relay cells in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (Vidyasagar and Urbas, '82), and most neurons in the visual cortex (Hubel and Wiesel, '62) in the cat. In the retina there is a systematic relationship between receptive field position (polar angle) and preferred orientation. Outside of the area centralis most retinal ganglion cells respond best to stimuli oriented radially, i.e… CONTINUE READING
