The response of such units to a small stationary spot of white light which is briefly flashed at some point within the receptive field has been generally found to be ON–OFF everywhere within the sensitive area2–4. Recently, certain units have been found in the retina of the goldfish, Carassius auratus, which give a similar… CONTINUE READING
