The visual responses of retinal X-cells, recorded as s-potentials in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), and geniculate X-cells, recorded as action potentials in the LGN, were studied in urethane anesthetized cats. We tested two widely held hypotheses: that the receptive field is (1) separable into spatial and temporal factors, and (2) even symmetric in space. The tests were applied to the amplitudes and phases of responses to sinusoidal gratings which drifted across the receptive field. The… CONTINUE READING
