Abstract
Neurons in primary visual cortex are typically classified as either simple or complex. Whereas simple cells respond strongly to grating and bar stimuli displayed at a certain phase and visual field location, complex cell responses are insensitive to small translations of the stimulus within the receptive field [Hubel Wiesel (1962) J. Physiol. (Lond.), 160, 106-154; Kjaer et al. (1997) J. Neurophysiol., 78, 3187-3197]. This constancy in the response to variations of the stimuli is commonly called invariance. Hubel and Wiesel
