THE VISUAL PATHWAY on SLIDE 40
This slide depicts the situation just "in front of" the chiasm. In the upper left we show the color code we will use to describe the visual field. In the center is a little diagram to remind you of what happens (illustrated for the vertical plane only) when the image is inverted. The diagram on the right shows what this pattern of light would actually look as it reaches the retina. It's easy, however, to confuse retinal maps with visual fields and since information about visual deficits is always expressed in terms visual fields we will omit retinal maps on most views.
