Survey of the Monkey Lateral Geniculate Body—A Foray into Color
This chapter presents a paper entitled “Spatial and Chromatic Interactions in the Lateral Geniculate Body of the Rhesus Monkey”. This paper represents the first effort in mammalian visual neurophysiology to examine the color sensitivities of the different spatial subdivisions of receptive fields. The study examined in detail how cells respond to variations in stimulus, size, shape, and wavelength. It explored the connections of rods and cones with single fourth-order cells by working in various states of light and dark adaptation. A wide variety of cell types were found to be present in the monkey geniculate. Some were concerned mainly with spatial variables, others with color, but most were able to handle both variables.
