In 149 units from area 17 and 48 units from area 18 the responses to stationary stimulation of different durations were compared with the responses to the same stimulus (a 0.3 degrees-wide light or dark bar) moving at different velocities. The aim was to test the hypothesis that the range of effective velocities depends on the time needed for the bar to cross the receptive field. Forty-two percent of the area 17 cells and 8% of the area 18 cells responded poorly or not at all to briefly… CONTINUE READING
