Try contacting Semir Zeki at University College London, UK. His
group are working on the separate functions of all the Visual
Areas. I found him to be very helpful. V5 specialises in detection
and location of movement.
        I shall be interested in anything you find concerning
branching from the LGNei to the VAs, especially if you find some of
the axons are un-myelinated.

Cheers! Gord.
