Contrast sensitivity and orientation selectivity in lamina IV of the striate cortex of Old World monkeys.

Abstract:

Contrast sensitivity and orientation selectivity were measured for neurons in lamina IV of macaque striate cortex. Contrast sensitivity was determined for a range of spatial frequencies, using a staircase method. The stimuli were at the optimal orientation, direction and speed of drift for each neuron. The assignment of each recording site to a subdivision of lamina IV was made by histological reconstruction of each electrode penetration from sections reacted for cytochrome oxidase and staine...
