1. The processing of rod signals within the receptive field centre of cat retinal ganglion cells was investigated in two spot summation experiments by using the analytical methods of response and sensitivity summation. 2. The rod system was isolated by presenting test stimuli of short wave-length light against either a completely dark background or a dim background of long wave-length light. 3. Stimulus--response curves were obtained for two small, square-wave modulated test spots applied at… CONTINUE READING
