Hypercomplexities in the visual cortex

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

It is difficult to conceive of the visual cortex as a straightforward relay system of neurones interconnected by hierarchically ordered excitatory connections which determine the bulk of neuronal properties there. Rather, it is clear that the visual response properties of most neurons depend on subtle interactions within an intricate system of more or less specific excitatory and inhibitory influences, whose cooperative details determine most aspects of neuronal behavior.
