The sensitivity to stimulus orientation — orientation selectivity — of simple and complex neurons in cat striate cortex was studied quantitatively. Orientation selectivity was found to be related to receptive field size — neurons with larger receptive fields being less sensitive to stimulus orientation than those with smaller receptive fields. Simple cells were more orientationally selective than complex cells. The orientation selectivity of simple cells was only weakly related to their… CONTINUE READING
