Brain mapping: The (un)folding of striate cortex

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Neurons in the primary visual cortex of mammals form an orderly representation of the visual field. A recent study shows that the cortical folding pattern of the human brain accurately predicts not only the extent of this area, but also the location of cells that represent different points of visual space, leading to further considerations of the cortical mapping principles operating in related species.
