Inferred class

A list of all cortical areas that have are typically considered to have a significant role in vision. This list is generated programmatically from the property Has role=Visual system function assigned to members of the Cortical parcel class. To add to this list, go to the category page for the type of neuron you are interested in adding and add "Visual system function" to the "Has role" field in the PONS form.
