Abstract

Recent studies on the response properties of neurons in primary visual cortex emphasize the dynamics and the complexities of facilitatory and suppressive interactions between the receptive field center and surrounding areas of visual space. These observations raise new questions about the circuitry responsible for receptive field surround effects and their contribution to visual perception.
