Direction-selective neurons in the optokinetic system with long-lasting after-responses: Physiology and possible functions
We describe the responses during and after motion of slow cells, which are a class of direction-selective neurons in the pretectal nucleus of the optic tract (NOT) of the wallaby. Neurons in the NOT respond to optic flow generated by head movements and drive compensatory optokinetic eye movements. Motion in the preferred direction produces increased firing rates in the cells, whereas motion in the opposite direction inhibits their high spontaneous activities. Neurons were stimulated with moving...[Show more]
