comment location of the center surround receptive fields for retinal ganglion cells
the receptive field of each ganglion cell will be different. some have receptive fields that cover the entire visual field, but most have receptive fields that only include a small portion of the visual field.

comment what is the exact definition of a receptive field ?
the receptive field includes all properties of the stimulus that determine a neuron's response. the sensory area is one such property of the stimulus. other properties might include intensity, frequency, duration, etc. the receptive field is the subspace of the entire multi-dimensional sensory space that a neuron responds to.
