the retina projects to ____
lateral geniculate nucleus
superior colliculus
LGN projects to
lateral portion: enter the internal capsule (retrolenticular portion of the posterior limb) and project to the lingual gyrus of the calcarine cortex

medial portion: course dorsally into the internal capsule (very posterior and retrolenticular limbs) and into the cuneus gyrus of the calcarine cortex
pupillary light reflex is mediated through connections of the ____ with other nuclei
pretectum; a group of nuclei in the midbrain just rostral to the superior colliculus
This pathway appears to be involved in linking circadian rhythms/hormonal cycles with ambient illumination; also involved in projections to the reticular formation for regulating sleep/wake/attention centers
One specific (and unique) class of RGCs projects only to the hypothalamus (specifically to the suprachiasmatic nucleus)
individuals with bilateral destruction of ____ can result in an individual who denies they are blind
the occipital lobes (which results in blindness)
with lesion of area 17 presumably, light can still be "perceived" through the ____ pathways
retina/SC/pulvinar/extrastriate pathway or other
