Early in postnatal development, the brain produces exuberant connections, some of which are later retracted, a process that is thought to play a role in the formation of functionally segregated modules in the brain. In the case of visual development, retraction between visual areas might underlie the known psychophysical and neural segregation of processing for different aspects of vision (e.g., color, motion, form, depth) known to exist in adults. This review covers the psychophysical evidence… CONTINUE READING
