Abstract
The orientation selective neurons in the monkey striate cortex seem to be organized in pairs of mirror symmetrical hypercolumnar patches, each of which centered by a "cytochrome oxidase blob." A simple scheme derived from recent data of Blasdel and Salama reconciles earlier models assuming either linear or circular representation of the preferred direction of edges in the visual field.
