In mammals where humans and monkey lies, we have various cortical visual areas which includes: (i) Primary visual cortex or the visual area V1. It is found in the posterior pole. This pole is located in the occipital cortex that is involved in processing visual stimuli. The V1 process information about moving and static objects. It is perfect in recognizing patterns.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
