Sinusoidal temporal modulation of the contrast of sinusoidal gratings has been used to provide one description of the temporal properties of neurones in area 17 of the cat's visual cortex. Concurrently, the waveforms of the neurones' responses to 2 s flashes of identical gratings were examined. In most neurones, the response to the long flash was much more transient than would be expected from the shape of the temporal-frequency tuning curve. Temporal summation in cortical neurones is non-linear.
