Abstract

Recent studies have led to a better understanding of the organization and connections of somatosensory and visual cortex in a number of mammalian species. Lesion studies have provided information on the significance of particular connections. The variable effectiveness of cortical lesions in deactivating target areas suggests that serial processing may be emphasized in higher primates.
