Definition: Retinotopy refers to the mapping of visual information from the retina to the visual cortex, where the topological organization of the visual field is preserved.


Definition: The retina is a layer of neural tissue located at the back of the eye that contains specialized cells called photoreceptors, responsible for converting light into electrical signals.

Visual Cortex

Definition: The visual cortex is a region in the brain located in the occipital lobe, mainly responsible for processing visual information received from the eyes.

Topological Organization

Definition: Topological organization refers to the arrangement and preservation of the spatial relationships between visual stimuli in the visual cortex. This means that adjacent regions of the visual field are represented by adjacent regions in the visual cortex.
