    Occipital Lobe
    Temporal Lobe
    Frontal Lobe
    Parietal Lobe

2. Which part of the retinas projects information from the ipsilateral (same side) visual fields to the contralateral (opposite side) hemisphere of the brain?

3. What is the correct order of the primary visual pathway in the brain?
    Cornea, Superior Colliculus, Brodmann Area 17
    Retina, Arcuate Fasciculus, Calcarine Sulcus

4. Which of the following can a lesion to the primary visual cortex (V1) or optic tract cause?
    Red Green Color Blindness

5. What characterizes the visual impairment known as akinetopsia?
    Impaired motion perception due to cortical damage
    Impaired ability of object recognition due to inability to link visual information to semantic knowledge
    Impaired color perception due to cortical damage
    Impairment of visually guided reaching, despite normal object recognition abilities

6. Which of the following is a subtype of visual agnosia that is essentially a failure to organize a coherent perception of an object because of a breakdown of object constancy?

    Dorsal Pathway, Parietal Lobe
    Ventral Pathway, Temporal Lobe
    Rostral Pathway, Occipital Lobe

    Acetylcholine Amylase
    Cytochrome Oxidase
    Dopamine Esterase
    Seratonergic Acid

9. Which of the following is a category specific visual deficit exemplified by the patient being unable to recognize faces?
    Associative Agnosia

10. Which of the following degrees of orientation of a stimulus does a simple cell of the visual cortex get most activated by?
