Evidence is presented that simple cells in the cat striate cortex (area 17) fail to respond to two dimensional random patterns but respond vigorously to one dimensional patterns with identical power at the preferred orientation of the cell. Further observations suggest that complex cells inhibit simple cells so as to permit them to respond selectively to one-dimensional stimuli. Implications for the role of this inhibition in visual analysis are discussed.

Intra-cortical inhibition prevents simple cells from responding to textured visual patterns.

Abstract

Evidence is presented that simple cells in the cat striate cortex (area 17) fail to respond to two dimensional random patterns but respond vigorously to one dimensional patterns with identical power at the preferred orientation of the cell. Further observations suggest that complex cells inhibit simple cells so as to permit them to respond selectively to one-dimensional stimuli. Implications for the role of this inhibition in visual analysis are discussed.
