7. Mechanisms of visual perception

The mechanisms of visual perception are the result of the contribution and “agreement” among the three main components of the visual system:

  • eyes, the receptor component of visual information

  • the optic nerve and optic tracts, the transmission pathways of visual information, and

  • different areas of the brain, responsible for the processing and interpretation of visual information.
