Cortical feedback signals generalise across different spatial frequencies of feedforward inputs

Revina, Yulia; Petro, Lucy S.; Muckli, Lars;
  • Publisher: Elsevier

Visual processing in cortex relies on feedback projections contextualising feedforward information flow. Primary visual cortex (V1) has small receptive fields and processes feedforward information at a fine-grained spatial scale, whereas higher visual areas have larger,... View more
