Description In highly visual mammals such as primates and carnivores, most of the visual information destined for conscious perception is sent from the eye, through the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) of the thalamus to primary visual cortex or V1. From there, visual information is then distributed among and processed by a large number of extrastriate visual cortical areas1. Over the years, many studies have shown that damage to different visual cortical areas cause different visual deficits.
