Abstract

The spatial acuity was measured for cells of the posteromedial lateral suprasylvian area (PMLS) of the cat. Acuities were found to be 2 cycles/degree (15 min arc) at best, and 1 cycle/degree (30 min arc) on average. Both best acuity and average acuity remained constant with receptive field eccentricity within 20° of the area centralis, and then fell gradually with eccentricity. Acuity was good, given receptive field size, and was not correlated with receptive field size. Comparisons are drawn with other visual structures.
