Psychiatry related information on Visual Cortex


High impact information on Visual Cortex

  • Switch-like behavior is not seen in the visual cortex, but might be seen in the hippocampus if the relative density of NMDA receptors there was higher than in the visual cortex.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)[11]
  • The visual cortex is thus served by many cortico-cortical connections to form a network of considerable complexity [12].
  • Dark-rearing delays the loss of NMDA-receptor function in kitten visual cortex [13].
  • A particularly striking example is the pattern of glomeruli in the olfactory bulbs; other instances are columns and 'blobs' in the visual cortex, barrels and columns in the somatosensory cortex, and striasomes and cell islands in the neostriatum [14].
  • Thus, calbindin occurs in the primate striate cortex in a pattern almost complementary to that displaying strong cytochrome c-oxidase activity [15].
