Corticocortical pathways can be classified as feedback and feedforward, in part according to the laminar distribution of the parent cell bodies. Here, we have developed exhaustive sampling procedures to determine unambiguously this laminar distribution. This shows that individual extrastriate areas in the adult cat have highly stereotyped proportions of supragranular layer neurons with respect to the total population of neurons back-projecting to area 17. During development, these adult laminar… CONTINUE READING
