1. We tested the effects of eye position on the visual excitability of 88 neurons in the primary visual cortex of awake cats trained in oculomotor tasks. For most cells, we examined responses evoked by retinotopically identical stimuli for centered gaze, 8 degrees to the left of center, and 8 degrees to the right of center. 2. An effect of eye position was observed for 40% of the cells. For 13%, responsiveness varied by a factor of 2 or more. Most commonly, response was maximal with gaze… CONTINUE READING
