Visual system organization and development

Each cell in the visual system has a receptive field, a portion of the retina to which it responds. Each cell in the visual system responds to specific features of a stimulus in its receptive field, such as shape, color, or movement. Separate pathways in the visual system attend to different aspects of the visual system. Certain kinds of brain damage can impair specific aspects of visual perception. Visual cortex is that part of the cerebral cortex that receives the most direct input from the visual system.
