EEE 508 - Lecture 3 Visual sensation Complex process, can be divided into 4 main stages: Image formation Incoming light is transformed by the optics of the eye and focused on the retina to create the retinal image. This is a series of simple and well known optical transformations. Every processing that follows this stage is at the neural level. Encoding Once the retinal image is created, it will be encoded by the visual pathways and conveyed to the cortex. Representation The encoded image is processed by the peripheral and early cortical visual pathways. Some preliminary and simple, yet important, processing is done at this level of vision. Operations such as detection, discrimination and simple recognition are performed. Interpretation The retinal image is interpreted, which constitutes perception. At this level, the brain associates perceptual properties to sensations such as color, motion or shape.
