Receptive Fields of Visual Neurons: The Early Years
TLDR
The history of the visual receptive field (RF) from Hartline to Hubel and Wiesel is traced, paving the way for a better understanding of how objective properties of the external world are encoded to become subjective properties of a subjective, perceptual world.
Anatomical organization of macaque monkey striate visual cortex.

I hope that this review of the internal anatomy of the monkey primary visual cortex makes clear the high degree of specialization that exists in each of the cortical laminae and their constituent
Retinofugal Projections Into Visual Brain Structures in the Bat Artibeus planirostris: A CTb Study
TLDR
An extensive morphological description of the retinal projections in the subcortical visual nuclei in the flat-faced fruit-eating bat (Artibeus planirostris) is provided using anterograde transport of the eye-injected cholera toxin B subunit (CTb), followed by morphometrical and stereological analyses.
Image Processing by the Human Visual System

TLDR
The processing power of the human visual system is truly awe-inspiring, and the processing capacities of current image processing technology look positively feeble when one takes into account the components used by biological visual systems, namely neurons.
Spatio-temporal aspects in the control of the visuomotor system
TLDR
A causal structure/function relationship between deficits in online motor control and the induction of inhibitory plastic changes over the medial intraparietal sulcus is indentified, suggesting this area as the neural locus in charge of the ability to update a motor command.

The representation of the visual field on the cerebral cortex in monkeys
TLDR
On the basis of his extensive and elegant anatomical investigations on the visual cortex, Poliak (1932) suggested that a mathematical projection of the retina on the cerebral cortex must exist and this work has made such a surface, folded it and compared it with the calcarine cortex of the monkey.
Connections and visual-field mapping in cat's tectoparabigeminal circuit.

TLDR
The aim of these experiments was to analyze the organization of the reciprocal connections between the cat's superior colliculus and parabigeminal nucleus, and found that a single site in the colliculi can be the target of axons from nonhomologous locations in the two parabigseminal nuclei; so that both parabIGeminal inputs are in register with the tectal map.
The Vertebrate Visual System
TLDR
The 418 pages devoted to these and other structures portray the system as a whole in an orderly fashion and with considerable new material, including a detailed account of the blood supply and drainage.

  • 1982
TLDR
The data do not support a clear-cut topographic separation of visual functions within the inferotmeporal cortex, however, neurons that appear to participate in visual memory, either exclusively or in addition to other functions, are concentrated in the cortex of the lower banks of the superior temporal sulcus.
Stimulus specific responses from beyond the classical receptive field: neurophysiological mechanisms for local-global comparisons in visual neurons.
TLDR
The historical development of the evidence of response selectivity for visual stimuli presented beyond the CRF is traced; the anatomical pathways that sub serve these far-reaching surround mechanisms are examined; and the possible relationships between these mechanisms and perception are explored.
Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex
TLDR
This method is used to examine receptive fields of a more complex type and to make additional observations on binocular interaction and this approach is necessary in order to understand the behaviour of individual cells, but it fails to deal with the problem of the relationship of one cell to its neighbours.
Spatial and chromatic interactions in the lateral geniculate body of the rhesus monkey.
TLDR
The opponent principle, in which spatially separated excitatory and inhibitory regions are pitted against each other, has now been observed for retinal ganglion cells in the frog, the lizard, the rabbit, the rat, the ground squirrel, and the monkey.
