Visual Pathways

by Craig Canby, PhD

Effectively a component of the central nervous system, the visual pathway is a complex entity that consists of the visual cortex, optic radiations, lateral geniculate body, optic tract, optic chiasm, optic nerve, and retina. By understanding the function of each portion of the visual pathway, you can predict symptomatology based on the location of a lesion and, in turn, localize pathology based on the symptomatology.

Visual Pathway
By Susan C. on 21. July 2020 for Lesions of the Visual Pathway

Found this video very helpful. I finally understand how these lesions affect our vision. Thanks

This is nice a clear and well paced lecture. It's easy to understand. Thanks.

Needs more information about the photoreceptors, but quite good otherwise
By Matthieu M. on 07. February 2019 for Eyeball and Retina

I think you could have gone in a little more in depth into the structure of photoreceptors. There were also a few other cells, such as the horizontal cells which backpack onto parts of the visual pathway-this knowledge is essential to understanding concepts of contrast. overall i do think it was a good lecture, but a little more depth into the vitreous humour and the aquous humour would have also helped
