Center-surround antagonism refers to the competition between the center and surround regions of a Center-surround receptive field , caused by the fact that one is excitatory and the other is inhibitory. Stimulating center and surround areas simultaneously decreases responding of the neuron, compared to stimulating the excitatory area alone.
