Abstract

Abstract Pupillo-motor areas in the visual cortex of the rabbit were studied. Electrical stimulation of the rabbit visual cortex induced pupillary constriction or dilation. The low threshold area (0.5–1.0 mA) for pupillary dilation was in the form of a narrow band extending rostro-caudally along the boundary between the striate cortex (VI) and the occipital cortex (VII), where the binocular area of the visual field is represented. The pupillo-constrictory cortical points were also identified in the caudal part of the splenial gyrus (lateral part) and the pupillo-dilator points in the rostral part of the gyrus (lateral part).
