1. 284 single cortical neurones were studied in area seventeen of twenty-five normal kittens and of fifteen kittens, binocularly deprived, whose first visual experience had been delayed until the experiment by bilateral lid-suture. Both normal and binocularly deprived kittens ranged in age from 1 to 6 weeks.2. The optimal, binocularly presented, visual stimulus and receptive fields were determined for each neurone by varying target configuration, speed and direction of movement and the prism… CONTINUE READING
