Occipital lobe - Definition


Definition


Located next to the parietal and temporal lobes, the occipital lobe contains the brain's visual centers. It is thus involved in the recognition of faces, objects, and colors. It also helps us with orientation and direction. As a result, any damage caused to the occipital lobe can lead to impaired or even loss of vision. It is not rare for this type of loss of vision to be accompanied by a patient's inability to recognize places they should know.
