Latency: Another potential code for feature binding in striate cortex

Academic Article


  • 1. We recorded the responses of 37 striate cortical complex cells in fixating monkeys while presenting a set of oriented stimuli that varied in contrast. 2. The two response parameters of strength and latency can be interpreted as a code: the strength defines the stimulus form (here the orientation), and the latency is more a function of the stimulus contrast. 3. Synchronization based on latency could make a strong contribution to the process of organizing the neural responses to different objects, i.e., binding.
