Abstract

Vision is the most studied and perhaps the best understood topic in sensory neuroscience. This chapter is concerned primarily with vision in mammals and focuses on the pathway in the visual system that has to do with perception: from the retina to the lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus (LGN) and on to the multiple areas of visual cortex. Other regions of the brain that receive visual input (such as the superior colliculus) are dealt with briefly in this chapter and more extensively in the chapter on eye movements.
