Cells in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of the macaque monkey were investigated with microelectrodes in an attempt to develop an overall classification scheme. We classified cells in the parvocellular (P) and magnocellular (M) layers according to (non)linearity of spatial summation, shock latency, and chromatic organization of center and surround. We also measured the spatial and temporal tuning to counterphasing and drifting sine wave gratings and tested for periphery effects. Our… CONTINUE READING
