    Primary visual cortex and corresponding visual field representation. A, Left occipital cortex showing the location of striate cortex within the calcarine fissure. The blue color represents the macula (central visual field); green represents the inferior visual field; and orange represents the superior visual field. The most peripheral fibers are represented by the stippled colors. B, Right hemifield, plotted with a Goldmann perimeter, corresponds to the regions of the striate cortex in A. The black circle marks the region of striate cortex corresponding to the contralateral eye’s blind spot. The stippled area corresponds to the monocular temporal crescent, which is mapped in the most anterior ~8% of striate cortex.
