The purpose of this study was to determine the retinotopic organization of rat primary visual cortex (area 17) using optical imaging technology. Stimulating discrete regions of visual space resulted in localised changes in the remitted light during optical imaging of visual cortex in rat. From these localised changes, our results confirm previous electrophysiological studies on the location, size and organization of rat primary visual cortex. Small differences in the cortical magnification… CONTINUE READING
