Additional Note on the Yin-Yang Brain Hypothesis

Yin and Yang in the Visual Cortex


This is a quick post to point out that neurobiologists have observed direction selective neurons in the visual cortex of animals that corroborate my Yin-Yang Brain hypothesis. Cortical columns with opposite direction preference are arranged in orderly pairs, one next to the other.

The Two Olive Trees
What they do not know is that these column pairs belong to separate but complementary hierarchies or trees. I predict that these complementary columns will be found throughout the cortex and that they will be found on every level of the cortical hierarchy.
