In the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) the large neurons of the magnocellular layers are functionally distinct and anatomically segregated from the small neurons of the parvocellular layers. This segregation of large and small cells is not maintained in the primary visual cortex (V1); instead a heterogeneous mixture of cells occurs, particularly in the output layers. Nevertheless, our results indicate that for the middle and upper layers of V1, cell size remains a predictor of physiological… CONTINUE READING
