Primary Visual Cortex / CatsEdit

A pioneering study in which microelectrodes were used to record extracellurarly responses of neurons in the primary visual cortex of anaesthetized cats. The study identified several types of neuronal receptive fields and showed that cortical neurons are selective for stimulus orientation and binocularity.

Primary Visual Cortex / PrimatesEdit

  • Hubel D., Wiesel T. (1968). Receptive fields and functional architecture of monkey striate cortex. The Journal of Physiology, 195, 215–243. FREE Full Text

A pioneering study in which microelectrodes were used to record extracellurarly responses of neurons in the primary visual cortex of anaesthetized macaque and spider monkeys. The study identified several types of neuronal receptive fields and showed that cortical neurons are selective for stimulus orientation and binocularity.
