Metabolic Mapping of the Primary Visual System of the Monkey by Means of the Autoradiographic [14C]Deoxyglucose Technique
The article described use of the [14C] deoxyglucose method to map functional activity in the primary visual pathways of the
monkey. This study provided the first functional images of the nature and extent of the ocular dominance columns in the primary
visual cortex and also for the first time showed the locale of the representations of the blind spots of the visual field
in the visual cortex.
