Retinotopic distribution of chromatic responses in human primary visual cortex

Vanni, S; Henriksson, L.; Viikari, M; James, Andrew

Description

In non-human primates at least three anatomically and functionally distinct channels convey signals from the retina to the primary visual cortex (V1). Two of these channels, the parvocellular and the koniocellular, are sensitive to chromatic contrasts and form the basis of color vision. In humans, common phylogenetic history with other primates and psychophysical experiments suggest identical retinocortical mechanisms but separate evaluation of the distinct anatomical channels has been...[Show more]
