The idea of two visual systems arose out of comparative studies of vision across different species. 1 It was sug­ gested that subcortical systems control orienting responses which define crudely 'where' an object is located and trigger foveation to that location, while corti­ cal mechanisms are used to define 'what' is actually in the foveated area. Using this idea, Bronson2 put forward a model of human development suggesting that newborn vision is totally subcortically controlled with the… CONTINUE READING
