Concept Info

NAME

Visual system

DESCRIPTION

The visual system is the part of the central nervous system that is required for visual perception – receiving, processing and interpreting visual information to build a representation of the visual environment. It consists of the eye, retina, fibres that conduct visual information to the thalamus, the superior colliculus and parts of the cerebral cortex.

JSON-LD is the canonical representation for SciGraph data.

TIP: You can open this SciGraph record using an external JSON-LD service: JSON-LD Playground Google SDTT

It consists of the eye, retina, fibres that conduct visual information to the thalamus, the superior colliculus and parts of the cerebral cortex.
