The receptive-field properties of units in the macaque LGN were studied with extracellular microelectrodes. Analysis of responses of opponent and nonopponent cells to stationary spots, moving spots, and grating revealed transient and sustained varieties of both spectral groups as well as cells with mixed properties. The cell's temporal discharge pattern was not correlated with its color sensitivity. Cells that ere classified as sustained responders did so under all stimulus conditions tested… CONTINUE READING
