Why does Koch believe that the neuronal correlates of consciousness are not to be found in the primary visual?

Why does Koch believe that the neuronal correlates of consciousness are not to be found in the primary visual cortex (V1)? Give at least four reasons.

  1. My suggestions are:
    The suggestion is at particular pattern of activity at
    the bridge locus would be sufficient for the occurrence of a particular perceptual
    state, despite the absence of the sort of activity elsewhere in the visual system
    (e.g., in the retina) that would normally give rise to such a perception, expresses
    what we are calling the minimal substrate thesis.
    According to the matching-content doctrine, for every visual experience E, there
    is a neural representational system N, such that (i) N is the minimal neural representational
    system whose activation is sufficient for the occurrence of E, and (ii)
    there is a match between the content of E and the content of N (Chalmers, 2000).
