PRIMARY VISUAL SYSTEM

The visual pathway in primates. Visual signals follow the path of the retina to the optic nerve, then the optic tract, lateral geiculate nucleus, the optic radiations and finally the seriate cortex in the brain. Functioning poorly in newborns, it develops with time.

PRIMARY VISUAL SYSTEM: "The primary visual system in humans gains more acuity after birth."
