Abstract

Visual cortex activation was a frequent topic of initial functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) investigations,1,2 and since then, fMRI has had a great impact on visual neuroscience as it relates to the human brain. The reasons for this are severalfold. Firstly, visual cortical areas occupy a large portion of cerebral cortex; their localization, for the most part, is relatively well-known from animal, lesion, and positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) studies
