Universality in the Evolution of Orientation Columns in the Visual Cortex
Orientation Columns In the brain's visual cortex, certain neurons respond to vertical lines and others to horizontal lines, with a range in between. Such orientation of neurons tends to be organizedExpand

Genetic Influence on Quantitative Features of Neocortical Architecture
The layout of functional cortical maps exhibits a high degree of interindividual variability that may account for individual differences in sensory and cognitive abilities. By quantitativelyExpand

Volume conservation principle involved in cell lengthening and nucleus movement during tissue morphogenesis
Tissue morphogenesis is the process in which coordinated movements and shape changes of large numbers of cells form tissues, organs, and the internal body structure. Understanding morphogeneticExpand

Passive mechanical forces control cell-shape change during Drosophila ventral furrow formation.
During Drosophila gastrulation, the ventral mesodermal cells constrict their apices, undergo a series of coordinated cell-shape changes to form a ventral furrow (VF) and are subsequentlyExpand

  • 1 February 2014
Theoretical neuroscientists have long been intrigued by the spatial patterns of neuronal selectivities observed in the visual cortices of many mammals, including primates. While theoretical studiesExpand

Response to Comment on “Universality in the Evolution of Orientation Columns in the Visual Cortex“
Meng et al. conjecture that pinwheel density scales with body and brain size. Our data, spanning a 40-fold range of body sizes in Laurasiatheria and Euarchonta, do not support this conclusion. TheExpand

Random waves in the brain: Symmetries and defect generation in the visual cortex
Abstract. How orientation maps in the visual cortex of the brain develop is a matter of long standing debate. Experimental and theoretical evidence suggests that their development represents anExpand

Quantitative 4D analyses of epithelial folding during Drosophila gastrulation
Understanding the cellular and mechanical processes that underlie the shape changes of individual cells and their collective behaviors in a tissue during dynamic and complex morphogenetic events isExpand

The pattern of ocular dominance columns in cat primary visual cortex: intra‐ and interindividual variability of column spacing and its dependence on genetic background
We present a comprehensive analysis of the intrinsic variability of the periodicity of ocular dominance columns in cat primary visual cortex (area 17) and its relationship to genetic background andExpand

Reorganization of columnar architecture in the growing visual cortex
Many cortical areas increase in size considerably during postnatal development, progressively displacing neuronal cell bodies from each other. At present, little is known about how cortical growthExpand
