The occipital lobe is the visual processing center of the mammalian brain.
The primary visual cortex is Brodmann area 17, located in the interior portion of the occipital lobe at the calcarine sulcus and sometimes continuing onto the surface of the lobe.
The lobes' Peristriate regions are the sites for center visuospatial processing, for color discrimination and for discrimination of movement.
