Hi,

	I am working on my masters thesis which requires a detailed review of
the visual pathway.  I am starting with the biochemistry of
transduction, moving through to the cerebral cortex, maybe going as far
as V4.  I have a starting list of references, which I will include here,
but it seems to be rather limited.  If you have any suggestions for
articles that may be good to read about any part of the visual pathway,
please let me know.  Thank you.
