Abstract

The multiple maps of the visual field found in the striate and the pre-striate cortex of the macaque exhibit selective responsiveness to different stimulus parameters (Zeki, 1978, 1980). Evidence for such organization in man is derived primarily from selective losses of visual function associated with disturbance of the central pathways. We present data for a single subject, M. W., who has normal achromatic vision but exhibits grossly abnormal responses to coloured and particularly red stumuli ...
