Potentials in the tectum of large (12--20 cm) goldfish, evoked by stimulation of the optic nerve, were recorded extracellularly with double-barrelled electrodes (d.c., saline and a.c., Woods metal--Pt). Four fibre groups (E, M1, M2, M3) were recorded at latencies of approximately 2, 3, 5 and 8 ms after stimulation (conduction velocities of approximately 7, 5, 3 and 2 m/s). The same four groups were recorded from the optic nerve when the tectum was stimulated. The fastest fibre groups (E) did… CONTINUE READING
