Historically, the large majority of visual research has concentrated on foveal vision. Peripheral vision has received much less attention even though it occupies the major part of our field of vision. Peripheral visual performance does not just represent a scaled down version of the fovea; it is limited by different factors and performance is very task dependent. In addition, there may be pathways in the periphery that are not present in the fovea. This talk will review some of the factors, both neural and optical, that limit different tasks in the periphery, and how it differs both qualitatively as well as quantitatively from foveal vision.

This talk is part of the Craik Club series.
