Correspondence between Monkey Visual Cortices and Layers of a Saliency Map Model Based on a Deep Convolutional Neural Network for Representations of Natural Images

This publication in eNeuro provides highlights valuable data obtained from acute recordings with standard NeuroNexus catalog probes in macaque visual cortices. The researchers covered the skull with acrylic resin, performed a craniotomy through the resin, then inserted silicon probes through a slit in the dura. Re-use of the probes and multiple recordings in the same animals were achieved with this method. Original recordings were published here. The present study’s computational results suggest that saliency of visual stimuli are represented in primary visual cortex.
