Receptive fields of single cells in the visual cortex of the hooded rat.


The receptive fields of 107 single cells in area 17 of the hooded rat were examined. About half the cells responded to stationary as well as moving stimuli and about half only to movement. A variety of receptive field types were observed. Some of the cells responding to stationary stimuli had circular receptive fields, some with and some without annuli, some had elongated receptive fields, some had irregular receptive fields. Of the cells that responded only to movement, some were orientation or direction specific and some were not. Only two cells were found that responded to stimulation of the ipsilateral eye. Columnar organization of the cortex was not observed.
