The Visual System—The Eye
Lecture no. 12 from the course: Understanding the Brain
Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
This lecture investigates how the eye works in concert with the brain. Far from taking a picture of the external world, the eye actually transmits information primarily about edges and contrast to the brain. From this limited input, the brain constructs the visual world we experience in all its complexity and detail.
