The interpretation of such experimental results calls for a detailed account of the anatomy of the visual system and as yet the optic structures have not been analyzed sufficiently to provide an adequate basis for experimental control. The studies of Cajal ('11)' Fortuyn ( '14)' Qurdjian ( '27), Clark ('31, '32) and Papez and Freeman ('31) have laid a foundation for studies of anatomical details but still present little more than an enumeration of the nuclei and areas receiving innervation from the retina.
