Why Visual ? Visual Processing & the Brain "Because half of the human brain is devoted directly or indirectly to vision, understanding the process of vision provides clues to understanding fundamental operations in the brain." --Professor Mriganka Sur of MIT's Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences 35 different areas in the brain that have been identified as being primarily or totally involved with the processing of visual information All lobes of the cerebral cortex are involved in the processing of visual information More area of the brain dedicated to vision than to all the other sense modalities combined --Robert B. Sanet, O.D., F.C.O.V.D; IV International Congress of Behavioral Optometry
