Corticothalamic feedback in the visual system

Abstract

I describe a model of feedback from the primary visual cortex to the lateral geniculate nucleus, and use it to study the sensitivity to orientation discontinuity of lateral geniculate relay cells. I compare with experimental results and make a number of testable predictions.
