[visionlist] What can retinotopy tell us about how the brain allows us to see?

Dear all,

I was wondering if some of you can point me to a set of papers (or just
send out some ideas) on whether and how the fact that we show that visual
cortex is organized in a retinotipic map (or tonotopy in auditory cortex)
is important in understanding how vision works/the brain allows for visual

That is, is there a function for retinotopy as it comes to vision? How does
showing retinotopic maps tell us anything about how vision works (mostly we
focus on things like reducing connections and thus saving energy)? How does
it impact visual processing? What have we learnt about visual cognition
from retinotopy? Perhaps even, are there visual effects that are a
consequence of retinotopy?

Sorry if the formulation of the question is not super clear and thanks in

Jorge Almeida
