Synchronized oscillatory activity is generated among visual neurons in a manner that depends on certain key features of visual stimulation. Although this activity may be important for perceptual integration, its functional significance has yet to be explained. Here we find a very strong correlation between synchronized oscillatory activity in a class of frog retinal ganglion cells (dimming detectors) and a well-known escape response, as shown by behavioral tests and multi-electrode recordings… CONTINUE READING
