The Siamese Cat
This chapter presents a paper entitled “Aberrant Visual Projections in the Siamese Cat”. This study investigated the central pathway of Siamese cats and kittens, particularly the topographic projections of the retinas to areas 17 and 18 of the visual cortex, and the receptive-field properties and binocular interaction of cells in these areas. It confirmed Guillery's observation that the central visual pathway of the Siamese cat was highly abnormal, and they supported his idea that the abnormality consisted primarily of a mistake at the chiasm, with some optic fibers from the temporal retina crossing instead of remaining uncrossed.
