Laminar distribution of preferred orientations in foveal striate cortex of the monkey



Laminar distribution of preferred orientations in foveal striate cortex of the monkey



Experimental Brain Research 41(1): A10



Microelectrode penetrations normal to the layers of foveal striate cortex in awake, behaving rhesus monkeys revealed 2 new facts about the distribution of orientation preferences in this tissue. In the top layers there is a predominance of vertical orientation preferences at eccentricities of less than 30 min, and a predominance of oblique orientation preferences at eccentricites of 30 min to 2.degree. At all eccentricities between 0-2.degree. there is a striking difference in orientation preference between upper layer (supragranular) and lower layer (infragranular) cells.
