Abstract

Necturus macubsus. II. FRANK S. WERBLIN Intraular E. DOWLING Hopkins Uniuersity JOHN Johns The Wilmer Institute, Baltimore, Maryl The 2120-5 School Medicine, FROM ELECTRICAL RECORDINGS at the kVd the optic nerve, it has been possible to specify many the functions performed bv the vertebrate . These include brightness detection (16, 18, 27), centersurround contrast detection (1, 8, 20, 23), motion detection (3, 4, 26-28). It has not been possible, however, to determine how the organizes the visual message recorded at the optic nerve, primarily because intraular recording from single s distal to the ganglion s has been difficult. Detailed structural studies the vertebrate , such as the one in the preceding paper (14), provide a framework within which the functional the can be described. The anatomical studies show a limited number clearly defined synaptic structures at which interaction between specific neurons can take place. In this paper we shall describe the intraularly recorded response characteristics each type neuron in a vertebrate , then relate the response each neuron to the responses those neurons to which it is synaptically coupled. By following the responses through the synaptic pathways, we can begin to describe how information from the visual field
