UC Course SubjectBiological Sciences
Number & Suffix: 133
Full UC Title: VISUAL NEUROSCIENCE 
Transcript Title: VISUAL NEUROSCIENCE 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course examines the various levels of the visual pathway and the neural mechanisms that enable visual functions such as perceiving form, color, depth, and movement and how visually-guided action is executed. It also explores the basis of higher brain functions such as visual attention and reading; how eye movements are controlled; and how vision is related to other senses such as balance, hearing, and touch. The course provides a number of examples of how disorders of the neural processing lead to specific clinical syndromes. Students learn the structure and function of the visual system and how neural elements within different parts of the visual system interact to provide our visual percept and behavior. They also investigate the structure, function, and development underlying the processing of visual information from the eyes to the further reaches of the brain.
