Pyramidal cell structure varies systematically in occipitotemporal visual areas in monkeys. The dendritic trees of pyramidal cells, on average, become larger, more branched and more spinous with progression from the primary visual area (V1) to the second visual area (V2), the fourth (V4, or dorsolateral DL visual area) and inferotemporal (IT) cortex. Presently available data reveal that the extent of this increase in complexity parallels the expansion of occipitotemporal cortex. Here we extend… CONTINUE READING
