In the primary visual cortex of normally reared adult cat, neurons activated through the corpus callosum are almost entirely located at the 17/18 border. They display small receptive fields distributed along the central vertical meridian of the visual field and are orientation selective. Here we demonstrate that a few weeks of monocular deprivation or unilateral convergent strabismus produced in adulthood does not modify the cortical distribution of these neurons, but leads to an increase of… CONTINUE READING
