distance between eyeball & primary visual cortex

Post by jeanmarc69 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 8:35 pm

Hi Everyone

- I search for the neural distance D between the eyeball's exit and the primary visual cortex: D = optic nerve, (then via the optical chiasma), the geniuclate nucleus, and the optical radiation.
- Some websites say that the speed can reach 100m/s thanks to myelin. Is that correct?
- Finally, elapsed time T should be X/V seconds. Correct for such a "physiological" measure?

Thank you for your help
