Name: Visual cortex primary
Description: Region of visual cortex that receives visual input from the eyes through the lateral geniculate nuclei (Sadato et al., 1996, PMID: 8606771).[1]
Synonym(s): V1, striate cortex, primary visual cortex
Is part of: visual system, occipital cortex
Has role: Visual system function
Super-category: Regional part of brain
*Id: nlx_143552
Defining criteria: cyto-architecture, connectivity

Defining Criteria: cyto-architecture, connectivity
Cyto-architecture defining Criteria: In humans, corresponds to Brodmann's area 17
Myelo-architecture defining Criteria: In humans, characterized by a prominent band of myelinated fibers in layer IV, visible to the naked eye in gross dissections.
Connectivity defining Criteria: Receives projections from the dorsal nucleus of the lateral geniculate body
Topography defining Criteria: In humans, surrounds the calcarine sulcus (Kandel, Schwarz and Jessell, Principles of Neural Science, Ed 4, pg 326)
