1. The excitability of the geniculo-striate pathway during a saccadic eye movement was studied in alert cats with chronically implanted electrodes. Excitability was assessed by the amplitude of post-synaptic components of field responses in both lateral geniculate nucleus and visual cortex to electrical stimulation of the optic chiasm. Modifications in amplitude were evaluated during the period following eye movements, by triggering a stimulator from potential shifts in the electrooculograms and altering delays in the stimulus pulse
