Six-week-old dark-reared kittens were exposed for 6 hr to a normal lighted environment in which they were free to move, but with eyes immobilized. Receptive field properties (orientation selectivity and ocular dominance) of the visual cortical cells (Area 17) were studied. No restoration of orientation selectivity could be observed when only the eyes were immobilized either by oculomotor nerve sections or by extraocular muscles removal, in contrast to what had been observed in intact free… CONTINUE READING
