Students were told that V1 (primary visual cortex) needs to process information from each eye separately (for edge detection), but also compare inputs between the eyes (for depth perception). They were not told about ocular dominance columns, but were asked to predict the arrangement of projections. Below are some of their options.

I think students mostly got it right!

An interesting paper about how it's possible that neurons evolved twice, independently (in a convergent way) in combjellies and all other species. Or maybe not.

That's how math looks like. I have no idea what these pictures are, but good Lord, aren't they beautiful!
