In newborn kittens, neurones in area 17 of the visual cortex projecting to area 18 are distributed in bands of uniform density across the superficial layers (laminae II, III and the upper part of IV) and the deep layers (V and VI). During weeks 2 and 3 postnatal, the cells of origin of this association pathway become mainly restricted to discrete, dense clusters, ∼600 μm from centre to centre, in the upper layers, with intervening zones free of association cells1,2, as in the adult cat3,4.
