It has been known for two decades that neurons in mammalian visual cortex respond selectively to stimuli falling on the retina at a particular angular orientation (Hubel and Wiesel, '62). Recent evidence suggests that most cat retinal ganglion cells (Levick and Thibos, '82) and relay cells (Vidyasagar and Urbas, '82) in the cat's dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus are also orientation selective. In the retina there is a systematic relationship between receptive field position (polar angle) and… CONTINUE READING
