Figure 24

S cone on and off cells of the koniocellular layers and the four varieties of L and M midget-like cells of the parvo-cellular layers of the LGN target different layers of striate cortex. The midget system must project to both the achromatic areas as well as the "blobs" involved in chromatic vision. The parasol cells from the magno-cellular layers of the LGN target a different layer than the previous cells.
