The neurons of layer 6 in the visual cortex

21 Aug 2020

The cell bodies of the neurons of layer 6 are shown at the bottom of this image. Neurons have dendrites, which pass through other layers of the cortex and collect information from these layers. The dendrites of layer 6 neurons can span the full length of the cortex. They are almost 1 mm long.
