A revision of the classic Holmes map. Arch Ophthalmol. 1991;109(6):816-824. 32 • Neuro-Ophthalmology Figure 1-22 Parallel visual processing pathways in the human. The occipitotemporal, or "what," pathway begins in the striate cortex (V1) and projects to the angular gyrus for language processing, to the inferior temporal lobe for object identification, and to the limbic structures. The occipitoparietal, or "where," pathway begins in the striate cortex and projects to the posterior parietal and superior temporal cortex, concerned with visuospatial analysis.

V 4, located within the lingual and fusiform gyrus, seems to be particularly sensitive to color. Damage to this area is probably responsible for most cases of cerebral achromatopsia. Anterior and lateral to area V 4, VS (posterior and within the superior temporal sulcus and gyrus subangularis) is very sensitive to movement and direction (Fig 1-22). The underlying white matter is heavily myelinated. The VS area, which corresponds to the medial temporal visual region, receives ipsilateral input from Vl and direct input from the M-cell layers of the LGN.
