Abstract : The physiological processing of visual information was studied in animals and partly in humans. The approach is manifold: (1) the study of the retinal phenomena; (2) the study of the electrical events in the central visual pathways; (3) the psychological correlations of the known electrophysiology. The properties of the retina deprived of its receptor layer as well as in the different steps of structural and functional maturation, the responsiveness of the lateral geniculate nucleus neurons in unanesthetized, intact brain, free-moving animals, the modalities of the motor response to stimuli lateralized in the visual field were the specific object of investigation.
