Vangue wa davela!
(a little Ouadda for those of you out there who read it!)
These pages contain my Eric Dolphy and Booker Little discographies, Captain Beefheart magic, some jazz items, Central African Republic stuff, and even some Science:
Some of this Neuroscience 2006 presentation was subsequently published below. The main point of the talk was that magnocellular LGN has a diversity of timing. This has been recognized by many authors (e.g., Kaplan & Shapley, 1982), but too often ignored. This was also the first report that lagged cells exist in monkey LGN.
