These impulses travel via the optic nerve to various sections of the brain, but particularly the visual cortex. The visual cortex decodes the incoming information and constructs the images we see.


  2. Basically, the brain is an amazing thing! All those little electrical pulses turn into an 3D map in our brain that allows us to interact with the world. Incredible when you think about it, eh?
