The feedback from area 18 of the cat visual cortex to the lateral geniculate nucleus has been investigated by labeling and reconstructing seventeen axons of known receptive field position and eye preference. The distribution of boutons from each axon was quantified with respect to the compartments of the geniculate complex, and the results were compared with an equivalent analysis of fourteen area 17 axons. Area 18 axons form large, sparse arborizations that extend up to 1.9 mm laterally (1170… CONTINUE READING
