This paper reports on experiments in which the effect of disconnexion of association fibres from Area 17/18 to the posterior suprasylvian cortex (PSSC) was investigated. In the control experiments, all neurons had large receptive fields in the central 5–10 ° of the visual field without detailled retinotopy. In the medial bank of PSSC, receptive fields were located in the contralateral visual field, while receptive fields of neurons in the lateral bank were located ipsilaterally. Neurons in PSSC… CONTINUE READING
