We studied the effect of local ionophoretic application of bicuculline on the response of cat lateral geniculate nucleus (laminae A) cells to stimulation by sinusoidal gratings and spots of light. Application of bicuculline produced an increase both of spontaneous and visually driven discharge of both X and Y cells. On stimulation by drifting sinusoidal gratings, the average discharge of both X and Y cells remained constant with increasing contrast under normal conditions. Application of… CONTINUE READING
