Distributed hierarchical processing in the primate cerebral cortex.
TLDR
A summary of the layout of cortical areas associated with vision and with other modalities, a computerized database for storing and representing large amounts of information on connectivity patterns, and the application of these data to the analysis of hierarchical organization of the cerebral cortex are reported on.
Information processing in the primate visual system: an integrated systems perspective.
The primate visual system contains dozens of distinct areas in the cerebral cortex and several major subcortical structures. These subdivisions are extensively interconnected in a distributed
Representations of the body surface in postcentral parietal cortex of Macaca fascicularis
TLDR
The somatotopic organization of the postcentral parietal cortex of the Old World monkey, Macaca fascicularis, was determined with multi‐unit microelectrode recordings and it is suggested that the representation in Area 3b is homologous to “SmI” (or “SI”) in non‐primates.
Cortical connections of areas V3 and VP of macaque monkey extrastriate visual cortex
TLDR
The cortical connections of visual area 3 and the ventral posterior area (VP) in the macaque monkey were studied by using combinations of retrograde and anterograde tracers to assess the hierarchical relationships between areas V3 and VP and their various targets.
A spatially organized representation of colour in macaque cortical area V2
TLDR
This work shows that within and beyond Cortical area V2, modules that respond preferentially to chromatic modulation, which are located in thin cytochrome oxidase stripes, gratings of different colours produce activations that peak at different locations, suggesting that thin stripes in V2 contain functional maps where the colour of a stimulus is represented by the location of its response activation peak.
Functional reorganization in somatosensory cortical areas 3b and 1 of adult monkeys after median nerve repair: possible relationships to sensory recovery in humans
TLDR
The results suggest that nerve regeneration reestablishes the cortical capacity to process tactile information from reinnervated skin via a prolonged reorganizational process that appears dependent on peripheral and central factors.
Modular Organization of Occipito-Temporal Pathways: Cortical Connections between Visual Area 4 and Visual Area 2 and Posterior Inferotemporal Ventral Area in Macaque Monkeys
TLDR
V4 and PITv contain functional modules that can be characterized by the specific patterns of segregated and convergent projections they receive from lower cortical areas, which may endow extrastriate cortical neurons with new and more complex receptive field properties.
