According to recent conceptualizations, there are two separate cortical visual systems--each with its own distinctive cortical and subcortical links--and these two systems respectively serve the functions of perception and of motor control. These ideas have been arrived at through a confluence of neuroanatomical, electrophysiological, behavioural, and neuropsychological research. It is proposed that this distinction between two broad purposes of vision and their neural bases can provide useful working procedures for analysing both: (i) the nature of visuomotor processing in the normal brain; and also (ii) the abnormal patterns of visual processing that are seen in certain neurological conditions.
