The organization of multiple functional maps in primary visual cortex
We are studing how spatial information in a visual scene is represented within the primary visual cortex. Using a functional imaging technique, intrinsic signal imaging, we have mapped how several image features are mapped together in this cortical area. Based on the observed organization, we present and test several hypotheses of the anatomical basis for this cortical representation.
