Abstract

The orientation bandwidth was measured at different spatial frequencies for simple and complex cells. With increasing spatial frequency, the orientation tuning of simple cells became progressively narrower. This tendency was much less marked in complex cells. The results are interpreted in support of geniculate cells with orthogonal orientation biases providing the excitatory and inhibitory inputs to a simple cell.
