Pretectal neurons responding to slow wide-field retinal motion: Could they compensate for slow drift during fixation
The visual response properties are described of a group of retinal slip neurons in the wallaby pretectum, referred to as slow cells. Their responses to motion are direction-selective: tempero-nasal and naso-temporal motion over the contralateral eye increase and decrease, respectively, the firing rate relative to the spontaneous level. Slow cells are maximally sensitive to image velocities from 0.08 to 10°/s. The present study focuses on slow cells that are maximally sensitive to image...[Show more]
