Visually elicited inhibitory processes, underlying the receptive field structure of cells in layers A and A1 of the cat dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN), have been examined by a combination of visual neurophysiological and iontophoretic techniques. Discrete visual stimulation of both centre and surround mechanisms, produced a powerful suppression of the elevated background discharge levels induced by iontophoretic application of an excitatory amino acid. These observations are… CONTINUE READING
