Vision and Cognition

The visual system is beautifully crafted to transmit information of the external world to visual processing and cognitive centres in the brain. The basis of cognition is the brain’s ability to synchronize all the electrical activity it is constantly receiving and generating. Deriving meaningful information from visual data almost certainly relies on cognition. Basic vision processes such as focusing and tracking eye movements are prerequisites to the ability to take information into the visual system for higher-level processing. The visual system does not work alone and vision therapy can be most effective when it incorporates cognitive skills development in the systems most integrated with the visual system, including attention, memory, and even auditory processing.
