occipital cortex definition and meaning

What is "occipital cortex"?

The occipital cortex, found in the posterior part of the brain, is responsible for processing visual stimuli and playing a crucial role in vision. It receives signals from the eyes and interprets them, allowing us to perceive and understand the visual world around us. The occipital cortex contains specialized regions that process different aspects of visual information, such as color, shape, and motion. Through its intricate neural networks, the occipital cortex enables us to see and perceive the richness and depth of the visual environment.
