This chapter examines how lesions of the cat lateral suprasylvian (LS) extrastriate region initially produces behavior deficits specific to complex moving stimuli. It describes how visual training in the impaired hemifield shows that specific and active training is needed for functional recovery following the lesions. Lesions induce a down-regulation in activity within supragranular layers of area 18, which leads to alterations in the neurochemistry of specific sets of LS-projecting pyramidal cells and the inter-neurons that surround them.

Keywords:   cat, lateral suprasylvian, neurochemical plasticity, visual recovery
