Show Summary Details


This chapter describes the isotope injection cases in the occipital lobe of five rhesus monkeys. It analyzes the resulting association, striatal, commissural, and subcortical fiber trajectories, as well as the cortical and subcortical terminations. The injections were in the medial preoccipital gyrus involving the medial part of area 19 (area PO) and area PGm (Case 17), the dorsal preoccipital gyrus in area DP and the upper part of area V4D (Case 18), the dorsal part of area V4 and the adjacent area V4T (Case 19), the ventral preoccipital gyrus above inferior occipital sulcus in area V4 (Case 20), and in ventral area V4, with some encroachment in ventral area V3 (Case 21).

Keywords: rhesus monkey brain; occipital lobe; area PO; area PGm; area V4D; area V4T; area V3
