1. There are several reports that random dot patterns are potent stimuli for cortical complex cells but not for simple cells. This finding is regarded as evidence against Hubel and Wiesel's hierarchical model of cortical circuitry, in which simple cells are the principal input to complex cells. We have reinvestigated the question quantitatively by recording responses to dot patterns from 106 cells in area 17 and the 17/18 border region of normal adult cats. 2. The cells were classified as… CONTINUE READING
