AEV is partially, but not consistently, retinotopic.

Receptive fields in AEV tend to be smaller for cells with RF centers at the center of the visual field than for those with RF centers in the periphery.

RFs in AEV are relatively large.

The most important cortical input to the SC (in cats) comes from layer V cortical neurons from a number of sub-regions of the anterior ectosylvian sulcus (AES):

  • anterior ectosylvian visual area (AEV)
  • the auditory field of AES (FAES)
  • and the fourth somatosensory area (SIV)

These populations in themselves are uni-sensory.
