Brain and eye anatomy. Computer artwork of the brain from below, with the front of the brain and the eyeballs (white, one at right sectioned) at top. Nerves (yellow) include the optic nerves, the olfactory nerves (between the optic nerves), and the upper part of the spinal cord (lower centre). At left of the spinal cord is one of the lobes of the cerebellum (other lobe removed), with the brainstem also shown (above spinal cord). At bottom are the occipital lobes (red), the visual processing centres at the rear of the brain. The optic nerves cross at a location called the optic chiasma (centre), allowing the images from both eyes to be combined.
