Phase sensitivity of complex cells in primary visual cortex

Hietanen, Markus; Cloherty, Shaun; Van Kleef, Joshua; Wang, C; Dreher, Bogdan; Ibbotson, Michael


Neurons in the primary visual cortex are often classified as either simple or complex based on the linearity (or otherwise) of their response to spatial luminance contrast. In practice, classification is typically based on Fourier analysis of a cell's response to an optimal drifting sine-wave grating. Simple cells are generally considered to be linear and produce responses modulated at the fundamental frequency of the stimulus grating. In contrast, complex cells exhibit significant...[Show more]
