The Sense of Vision

Neuroscience students should be sure to read Brain Facts chapter 3 (Senses and Perception) and pages 542-563 in your book, which is about the eye and vision.  In particular, by the time you come back from break, make sure you know the parts of the eye, extrinsic muscles of the eye and which motions they control, and the visual pathway from the retina to the occipital lobe via the optic nerve, tract, chiasm, etc…  Be sure to note which visual information crosses hemispheres and which does not as it pertains to the eye’s visual field.
