Simple cells – elongated bar Receptive fields are elongated (not circular) and are divided into excitatory (+) and inhibitory (-) regions. They are orientation selective . New emerging property, generated in visual cortex They are position selective . If the elongated bar is in the right position you get an excitatory response If the bar is in the wrong position you do not get a response.
