Interocular suppression in the primary visual cortex: a possible neural basis of binocular rivalry

Abstract:

In an attempt to demonstrate a physiological basis for the alternating suppression of perception when the two eyes view very different contours (binocular rivalry), we studied the responses of neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) and area 17 of 17 cats for drifting gratings of different orientation, spatial frequency and contrast in the two eyes. Almost half of the LGN neurons studied exhibited modest inhibitory interocular interaction, but independent of interocular differences in...
