The main reference (Zeki, 1993) addresses the question of functional localization in the visual system, and it is arguable that the evidence for localization is stronger in the case of the visual system than any other area of brain function.

A basic summary from earlier papers shows that there are several different areas of the primate brain which are involved with different aspects of vision.

Zeki's argument is that what is the case for vision probably applies to the brain as a whole.

The evidence from basic physiological and anatomical work is supported by the evidence from pathologies due to focal brain damage.
