Receptive field organization of the S-potential.


Journal Article

The receptive fields of S-potentials have been studied in carp retinas. The relationship between the stimulus intensity and area of stimulation was examined for each component of three different types of S-potential. It appears that for each component there is full summation over a large portion of the retina, a type of organization different from that found in the ganglion cell.
