Cortical connections and functional interactions between visual cortical areas
This chapter begins by presenting the general characteristics of interarea cortico-cortical connections. It also discusses the hierarchical organization of cortical areas. It then explores the functional streams and channels in feedforward cortico-cortical connections. In addition, a discussion on the functional roles of feedforward and feedback connections is offered. The results of thirty years of investigation on the development of cortical connections provides a more balanced view of the mechanisms involved. There is an early specification of the connectivity pattern that involves regional and areal specification.
