TJ . The lateral ventricles are part of the ventricular system of the brain. Both cerebral hemispheres contain a lateral ventricle. The lateral ventricles are the largest of the ventricles. Each lateral ventricle resembles a C-shaped structure that begins at an inferior horn in the temporal lobe, travels through a body in the parietal lobe and frontal lobe, and ultimately terminates at the interventricular foramina where each lateral ventricle connects to the central third ventricle. Along…

Occipital Lobes: Located at the lower back of the head, the occipital lobes: receive and process visual information; and contain areas that help in perceiving shapes and colors. Damage to the occipital lobes can cause: visual field defects; and distorted perceptions of size, color, & shape.

How the Occipital Lobes Help You See

The occipital lobes are positioned at the back area of the brain. These cerebral cortex lobes are the main centers for visual processing.
