This area does not display the same cortical magnification as the primary visual cortex but it still maintains a retinotopic
map of the visual scene in order to allow appropriate processing of signals.
Reorganization of retinotopic
cortical maps in adult mammals after lesions of the retina.
Ringach, Link between orientation and retinotopic
maps in primary visual cortex, 109 PROC.
1999) Location of human face-selective cortex with respect to retinotopic
As information from the eyes enters the brain, it still carries the imprint of the retinal organization (that is, retinotopic
20) Retinal sensory inputs may be referred to as optical in art, as veridical in perceptual psychology, and retinotopic
In the goldfish, HNK-1 has been implicated in the activity-driven sharpening of the retinotopic
map formed by regenerating retinal fibers (Schmidt and Schachner, 1998).
This patient's extremely rapid recovery suggests that the mechanism of injury involved either vascular or direct compression that led to relative ischemia of the optic nerve immediately adjacent to the sphenoethmoid sinus (the retinotopic
arrangement of axons in the optic nerve corresponds to the affected area).
The maps in the cochlea and the auditory cortex are called tonotopic maps while the map in V1 is called a retinotopic
To simplify storage and retrieval of these retinotopic
memories, says Thomas S.
