Immobilization of one eye in the adult cat following section of the oculomotor cranial nerves causes a decrease of the proportion of binocularly activated cells in the striate cortex. This change in the binocular properties of cortical cells also takes place if the animal is deprived of vision from the day on which the nerves are cut to the day of the electrophysiological recording. No similar change in the proportion of binocular cortical cells is observed in cats where both eyes have been immobilized.
