Abstract

Research, Laminar of Neurophysiolagy, Institutes of Health, Laboratory Bethesda, of Vision Maryland hTational Eye Institute, 20014 tween color and noncolor processing are also described. The implication of this work is that there are several different neuron chains in , each one performing its own function. Different functions are associated with different layers in . A brief summarv of this work has appeared elsewhere (12). METHODS THERE IS NOW considerable physiologic evidence (24-27, 34) to support Lorente de No’s (29) 30-year-old observation that the elementary of cerebral is a vertical column of extending from the pial surface to white matter and receiving one or a small number of inputs in common. Lorente de No (29) also described neuron chains of varying complexity within each column. Some chains were simple two-neuron arcs, with the afferent fiber synapsing directly onto an output cell. Other chains involved various numbers of interneurons between input and output. Implicit in this concept of multiple neuron chains is the notion that any given column has multiple functions and multiple outputs. Hubel and Wiesel (24, 26) have postulated a single neuron chain in , involving afferent axons, simple , complex , and (more recently) hypercomplex . In
