"The visual cortex is like a tiled floor, with each neuron responding to visual stimuli in its own small area. Collectively, the neurons encode all of a visual scene. Each neuron also has a preferred orientation: Some neurons respond best to horizontal edges, others to vertical edges, and still others to oblique ones."
