  • The retino-cortical visual pathway is retinotopically organized: Neighborhood relationships on the retina are preserved in the mapping to the cortex. Size relationships in that mapping are also highly regular: The size of a patch in the visual field that maps onto a cortical patch of fixed size, follows, along any radius and in a wide range, simply a linear function with retinal eccentricity. This is referred to as M-scaling. As a consequence, and under simplifying assumptions, the mapping of… CONTINUE READING
