Single-unit and 2-deoxyglucose studies of side inhibition in macaque striate cortex.

Abstract

In the course of studies to map spatial frequency tuning of neurons in layers 2 and 3 of macaque striate cortex, we found that a high proportion (70%) of cells in the interblob regions responded poorly to full-field gratings, compared with responses to single bars, edges, or delimited gratings. This was most often due to side inhibition, in which increasing… (More)
