Abstract
Of the two visual systems in vertebrates, the tectofugal pathway has often been attributed to stimulus localization, while the thalamofugal pathway was thought to be involved in stimulus identification. This review provides evidence that the tectofugal pathway serves both functions. It is speculated that the initial task of the tectum is to localize an object and to guide the fixation movement. The object in focus is then analysed by the higher stations of the tectofugal system. The result of the analysis is fed into the optic tectum and is used for decision about the treatment of the object.
