The response characteristics of single-units in the nucleus of the basal optic root (nBOR) of the pigeon accessory optic system (AOS) were investigated using standard extracellular techniques. The receptive fields (RFs) were large (20–115° long) and elliptical and were found throughout the contralateral visual field with the exception of the red field. The RFs did not have inhibitory surrounds and there was no evidence of retinotopic organization. Most neurons responded to small moving spots… CONTINUE READING
