With the aid of stereomicroscopical examination of pigment preparations up to 1,000 μm thick the various areas of the occipital lobe of the human brain are described. In the occipital lobe there are three main cortical types, forming the striate, the parastriate area, and the peristriate zone. The parastriate area is a horseshoe-shaped fringe area adjacent to the primary visual field.
