the area of the visual field in which the presence of a stimulus influences the firing rate of that neuron; the part of the neuron in which light must fall to excite the neuron
geniculate nucleus associated in vision; of the thalamus; relay point of vision signal between retina and primary visual cortex
neuron in the striate cortex that responds only when a line of a particular direction appears within its receptive field
Orientation Sensitive Neuron whose receptive field is organized in an opponent fashion; inhibitory region runs parallel to receptive field
Orientation Sensitive Neuron which does not possess an inhibitory surround; respond when line moves perpendicular to its angle of orientation; movement detectors
TE and TEO
areas of the brain at the end of the ventral visual stream; damage here leads to difficulty in determining WHAT an object is
