IN normal adult cats the first and second visual areas (V1 and V2) in the two cerebral hemispheres are interconnected through the corpus callosum (CC) by neurones (callosal neurones) which have a characteristic laminar location and are restricted to the region of the boundary between cytoarchitectonic areas 17 (V1) and 18 (V2)1–4. Callosal neurones acquire this distribution postnatally by disappearing (dying, or eliminating their callosal connections) from most of areas 17 and 18 and decreasing… CONTINUE READING
