The Geometry of Visual Cortical Maps

Neuron. 2016 Aug 17;91(4):716-718. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2016.08.001.


The primary visual cortex has a map of multiple visual parameters whose topographic relations remain poorly understood. A new study (Nauhaus et al., 2016) reveals a nearly geometric map-topography that coexists within a remarkably precise representation of visual space.
