The functional and structural topography of lateral inhibitory connections was investigated in visual cortical area 18 using a combination of optical imaging and anatomical tracing techniques in the same tissue. Orientation maps were obtained by recording intrinsic signals in regions of 8.4-19 mm2. To reveal the inhibitory connections provided by large basket cells, biocytin was iontophoretically injected at identified orientation sites guided by the pattern of surface blood vessels. The axonal… CONTINUE READING
