Parvocellular Pathway

Monday, November 2, 2009

The parvocellular pathway is the part of the visual system specialized in transmitting fine-grain highly detailed information. The parvocellular pathway begins with the midget bipolar ganglion cells in the foveal area of the retina and ends within the parvocellular layer of the lateral geniculate nucleus. Conduction is slower than that of Magnocellular Pathway.
