This may well be explained as follows: Any new type of system that arises, by a
change in template, either gene or chapter (see page 55), must be (a) equally
complex, (b) more complex, or (c) less complex than its predecessor. Its
The visual projection cortex also contains "complex" cells of echelon VI spatially
mixed with the simple ones, from which they apparently receive their input
signals. Like the simple cells, some complex cells are specialized to put out
signals to a ...
Some are simple, others complex. Some respond to slits, while others respond to
dark bars and edges. Presumably, input fibers to the simple cells come from the
lateral geniculates, and output fibers from them go to the complex cells.
