This suggests that during the experiment AM had a drastically different pattern of activity not related to the activation of the visual cortex (as expected).
Asymmetric random matrices: What do we need them for?
Together with colour, motion and depth processing it forms the main pathways in the visual cortex.

Finally, several works tend to confirm that the retina generates a compact code to be transmitted to the visual cortex .
Streaming an image through the eye: The retina seen as a dithered scalable image coder
Recent studies such as confirmed that the retina is doing non-trivial operations to the input signal before transmission to the visual cortex.
Streaming an image through the eye: The retina seen as a dithered scalable image coder
The second hypothesis is that only a few statistical quantities measured over the spike-based output convey the relevant information about the stimulus to the visual cortex .
Streaming an image through the eye: The retina seen as a dithered scalable image coder
This is a crucial point because our current results may prove that the retina conveys a code that is optimized for the tasks to be performed by the visual cortex as categorization.
Streaming an image through the eye: The retina seen as a dithered scalable image coder
These features, if the dithering hypothesis is confirmed, help the visual cortex recognize the fine details of the image.
Streaming an image through the eye: The retina seen as a dithered scalable image coder
This latter point is interesting because it may prove that the retina conveys a code that is optimized for the tasks to be performed by the visual cortex.

Determination of the precision of spike timing in the visual cortex of anaesthetised cats.
A model of Poissonian interactions and detection of dependence
A possible mechanism for this linking was discovered in multi–electrode recordings in the visual cortex of cats or other mammals (Gray and Singer, 1989; Eckhorn et al., 1988).
Neural Networks
This effect could even be observed among neurons belonging to different areas in the visual cortex.
