The First Three Kitten Deprivation Papers
This chapter presents the first three kitten deprivation papers entitled “Effects of Visual Deprivation on Morphology and Physiology of Cells in the Cat's Lateral Geniculate Body”, “Receptive Fields of Cells in Striate Cortex of Very Young, Visually, Inexperienced Kittens”, and “Single-Cell Responses in Striate Cortex of Kittens Deprived of Vision in One Eye”. The first paper describes single-unit recordings in the optic tract and lateral geniculate body of kittens in which one eye had been deprived of vision, and an anatomical examination of the visual pathways in these animals. The second paper describes single-unit recordings in the striate cortex of newborn kittens. The last paper deals with the responses of cells in the visual cortex of visually deprived animals.
