This chapter considers the consequences of retinal lesions and discusses the controversies surrounding retinal lesioning techniques. The perceptual consequences of these techniques are described including hallucinations and perceptual ‘filling-in’. It also discusses the mechanisms of neural circuitry generating these disturbances.

Keywords:   retinal lesions, visual cortex, perceptual effects, hallucinations, neural circuits
