in of the Macaque c. E. Princeton Universi& D. B. BEEDEK c. G. De@rtment of Psychology, Princeton, New Jersey IN THE LAST DEC,ADE, considerable progress has been made in understing the physiology of one of the most fundamental aspects of human experience: perception of the world. It is now clear that the retina pathways do not simply transmit a mosaic of Iight dark to some central sensorium. Rather, even at the retinal level, specific features of stimuli are detected their presence communicated to the next level. In cats monkeys, the geniculostriate system consists of a series of converging diverging connections such that at each successive tier of processing mechanism, single neurons respond to increasingly more specific stimuli falling on an increasingly wider area of the retina (19-Z). How far does this analytical-synthetic process continue whereby individual cells have more more specific trigger features? Are there regions of the brain beyond striate prestriatel cortex where this processing of information is carrie,d further? If so, how far in what way? Are there cells that are concerned with the storage of information as well as its analysis? There are several lines of evidence suggesting that a possible site for further processing
