Stripes of T1-dependent contrast were detected in the cat primary visual cortex by high-resolution imaging at 9.4 T. These stripes were well-matched with the regions of highest stimulus-induced CBV fMRI percentage changes. The persistent presence of in stripes paraformaldehyde fixed brains shows that they arise from structural features.
