Visual pathways. Artwork of the visual pathways in the human brain. The optic nerves extend from the retinas at the back of each eye towards the optic chiasma (cross)at the centre of the brain. At the optic chiasma the optic nerves from the left visual field (blue) of both eyes go to the right hemisphere of the brain, and vice versa. The optic nerves terminate in the occipital lobes, the visual processing centres at the rear of the brain.
