LGN and V4 have distinct layers for each eye.⇒
The distinct layers for each eye in LGN and V4 only arise after the initial projections from the retina are made, but, in higher mammals, before birth.⇒
Most neurons in the visual cortex (except v4) are binocular.
Usually, input from one eye is dominant, however.⇒
The distribution of monocular dominance in visual cortex neurons is drastically affected by monocular stimulus deprivation during early development.⇒
Law and Constantine-Paton transplanted eye primordia between tadpoles to create three-eyed frogs.
The additional eyes connected to the frogs' contralateral tecta and created competition of inputs which is not usually present in frogs (where the optic chiasm is perfect).
The result were tecta in which alternating stripes are responsive to input from different eyes.
Similar results result if one of the tecta is removed and both natural retinae project to the remaining tectum.⇒
Ocular dominance stripes have been shown to exist in the monkey SC. In some places, they weren't crisp but ran into each other.⇒
