Lecture 5
x Retina is part of the CNS (grows out of the brain, thus part of
the brain)
x Retina is part of the CNS not periphral
x Retina is divided down the middle
o Each half has a different name
Nasal portion
x closest to the nose
Temporal portion
x Closer to temporal lobes
o Info from each of the halves form a specific connection
that conveys information
x Nerve

CNS, referred to as tract)
x Tract
o pathway inside the central nervous system
x Optic nerve
o everything closest to the eye is called optic nerve
o even though it is all part of the CNS since the retina
grows out of the brain, but it is done for simplicity
x Optic chiasm
o where the paths cross, but as moves back towards the

x nasal portion of ]vYZfibres cross
x the temporal portion of retina goes on its (same side)
x if wiggle right hand fingers, it is going to hit the left side of
the retina of each eye
x something in right visual field will hit the nasal portion of the
right eye and temporal portion of left eye
o information from the right visual field ends up in the
left cortex

o goes to the other hemisphere
x everything you see is your visual field
o the middle object/point is the dividing line
o to the right of it is your right half visual field
x The fibers from the nasal portion of the retina cross each
others fibers i.e. (nasal from right and from left will cross to
the other side of the brain)
x The further you are into the periphery of the visual system,
the more simple it is

x When get to area 17 (primary cortex of occipital lobe), the
neurons responds to a particular line or orientation and do
not respond to lines of different orientations
x When get to associational cortex, the neurons respond to
much more complex situations. i.e. objects, hands, etc
x Behavioural deficit in a person is directly related to where
the problem is i.e. if damage in associational cortex, what
goes wrong is completely complex

either left or right visual field)..eye is removed
x 3. If cut retina in half, will only affect nasal portion of each
eye
o The left eye will not be able to see anything in the left
visual field
o Cannot see anything in the left visual field
x If get complete damage to occipital cortex
o Complete blindness on opposite visual field
o Posterior artery is damaged *then kills whole occipital
cortex
x If get incomplete damage, blindness will occur in some
portion of the opposite visual field
x Macular sparing (not complete blindness, but sparing right
in the centre)
x If get little tiny area that is damaged, get a scatoma (small
area of blindness) caused by a small area of damage
o D}}(Z]u}v[Àvv}]]µ]v
makes up for it
Small scatomas are NOT noticed
o We all have a naturally occurring blindspots
x Damage into each side has different consequences
o Right side: patterns
o Left: perception of language, visual items

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
