The neurons in the superficial (rhesus) monkey SC largely prefer moving stimuli over non-moving stimuli.

There are marked differences in the receptive field properties of superficial cat and monkey SC neurons.

Ocular dominance stripes have been shown to exist in the monkey SC. In some places, they weren't crisp but ran into each other.
