Abstract:

The transfer functions of Lateral Geniculate Nucleus and of Visual Cortex I have been determined under conditions of steady state flickering illumination at fixed intensity. The results are compared with those of steady non-flickering stimulation. Microelectrode recordings under conditions of steady illumination with non-flickering light of different intensities have been made from individual fibers in the geniculo-cortical and in the corticothalamic tracts. An analysis of mean discharge frequency and of interspike interval distribution has been performed. Author
