Abstract

Within individual penetrations in the visual cortex, spatial periodicities of periodic complex cells differ by either one-half or one octave. When data are pooled from neurons subserving the central visual area in many cats, the results indicate that spatial periodicities cluster at one-half octave intervals over a 2 1/2-octave range (0.95 to 5.4 cyc/deg). Thus a relatively small number of such channels spaced at regular intervals along a logarithmic scale within each orientation column may suffice for this stage of spatial processing.
