The occipital lobe is the processing area of the brain. This lobe is where the visual information gets processed. It only deals with vision perception. This area has six big layers and starts to code visual features such as luminance, spatial frequency, and motion (Gazzaniga, Irvy, & Mangun, 2018). If this were to be damaged, we wouldn’t be able to see objects clearly or process things so easily. Also, hallucinations which is seeing things that really aren’t there.
