V2 is a visual area of the macaque monkey which is at the second level in a recently proposed hierarchy of cortical visual areas1. Histochemical staining for cytochrome oxidase (CO) in V2 reveals a pattern of alternate thick and thin CO-rich stripes separated by CO-sparse interstripes2,3. These subregions receive distinct inputs from neurones in CO-rich and CO-sparse zones arrayed within the superficial layers of V1 (refs 4,5). Are output projections from V2 to higher visual areas also… CONTINUE READING
