Résumé
Responses to visual stimulation were recorded in cells from the border region between cortical areas 17 and 18 in anaesthetized cats. There was found to be a band of ipsilateral representation, the cells of which had rather large receptive fields centered up to 8-12 degrees into the ipsilateral hemifield. The edges of the receptive fields extended 2-3 degrees still further ipsilaterally. The cortical region involved is very small, however, stretching 0.2-1.0 mm mediolaterally, and possibly restricted largely to layers II and III. Hence, in cats, as in sheep and hamsters, there is a band about 20 degrees wide of visual field along the naso-temporal division that is represented in the visual cortices of both hemispheres.
