Brodmann Area 17

June 2, 2015, Day 17

… and day 17. I thought it would be fun to do a li’l bit of biology with a few fun factoids.
– A Brodmann area is a region of the cerebral cortex, in the human or other primate brain,
– Brodmann areas were originally defined and numbered by the German anatomist Korbinian Brodmann
– Brodmann Area 17 is the visual cortex of the brain is the part of the cerebral cortex responsible for processing visual information.
– It is the simplest, earliest cortical visual area and highly specialized for processing information about static and moving objects and is excellent in pattern recognition.
– The primary visual cortex is divided into six functionally distinct layers, labeled 1 through 6.

AND what does it take to fuel this amazing part of our incredible brain? Glucose. And where do we find glucose?  Starches (sometimes referred to as complex carbohydrates) are foods with “natural sugars,” such as, barley, corn, millet, oats, potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, and wheat.
