The cortical vasculature is a well-structured and organized system, but the extent to which it is organized with respect to the neuronal functional architecture is unknown. In particular, does vasculature follow the same functional organization as cortical columns? In principle, cortical columns that share tuning for stimulus features like orientation may often be active together and thus require oxygen and metabolic nutrients together. If the cortical vasculature is built to serve these needs… CONTINUE READING
