This infographic discusses each of the following structures of the brain and their functions: Frontal Lobe, Parietal Lobe, Occipital Lobe, Cerebellum and Temporal Lobe. It also discusses the right and left hemispheres of the brain and what they are responsible for controlling.
Occipital Lobes: Located at the lower back of the head, the occipital lobes: receive and process visual information; and contain areas that help in perceiving shapes and colors. Damage to the occipital lobes can cause: visual field defects; and distorted perceptions of size, color, & shape.
Superior view of the brain revealing the visual pathway and superior sagittal sinus. Electrical nerve impulses travel from the eyes to the occipital lobe in the back of the brain via millions of nerves fibers that make up the visual pathway.
