I. Recordings were obtained from 108 cells near the border of areas 17 and 18 in anesthetized, paralyzed cats. Emphasis was placed on analyzing responses to moving sinusoidal gratings, whose spatial frequency, velocity, and contrast were varied systematically. In the presence of drifting gratings, about 30% of the cells responded with a periodic discharge at virtually all effective spatial and temporal frequencies. These neurons tended to be “simple,” to have very low levels of spontaneous… CONTINUE READING
