Interactions between ON and OFF signals in directional motion detectors feeding the NOT of the wallaby

Ibbotson, Michael; Clifford, Colin W.G.

Description

An apparent motion stimulus is used to probe the interactions between signals representing brightness increments (ON stimuli) and decrements (OFF stimuli) in the directional motion detectors forming the input to the nucleus of the optic tract (NOT) of the wallaby, Macropus eugenii. Direction-selective NOT neurons increase their firing rates during image motion from temporal-to-nasal over the contralateral eye (preferred direction) and their spontaneous activities are inhibited by motion in the...[Show more]
