Abstract

The development of ocular dominance columns in primary visual cortex has attracted much interest from both experimentalists and theoreticians. One key parameter of these columns is their periodicity - it is thus important to understand how this is determined. Novel experimental work demonstrates that the periodicity is influenced by the temporal patterning of afferent activity, as predicted by recent theoretical work.
