A basic hypothesis in neuroscience is that function and structure are inter-connected. In this study we set to explore the cortical architecture basis of the functional segregation of the visual system. Here we show how fMRI and cortical architecture measures can be combined. Using this approach we were able to investigate and reveal, for the first time, the anatomical basis of stimulation selectivity in the visual system.
