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.

*Note: Neurolex imports many terms and their ids from existing community ontologies, e.g., the Gene Ontology. Neurolex, however, is a dynamic site and any content beyond the identifier should not be presumed to reflect the content or views of the source ontology. Users should consult with the authoritative source for each ontology for current information.
|Comment||Replaced oen identifier with UBERON identifier. UBERON takes precedence as it is a core community ontology.|
