Abstract

We describe the cytoarchitectonic characteristics of the monocular (Oc1M) and the binocular (Oc1B) areas of the rat visual cortex and their boundaries in Nissl-stained sections. This formulation, which draws upon the computer image analysis of these areas by Zilles et al. (J. Comp. Neurol., 226 (1984) 391-402), can aid in the delineation of Oc1M from Oc1B in quantitative studies requiring a volumetric analysis of both subfields.
