Paired flashes of light were presented to monkeys under a variety of testing conditions. The amplitude of the evoked response at striate cortex to the second flash was expressed as a percentage of the response to the first flash and plotted against inter-flash interval to yield a recovery function. Bilateral removal of inferotemporal cortex failed to change the recovery function. This result fails to confirm the hypothesis that inferotemporal cortex exerts an inhibitory influence on the visual system.
