More than 60% of cerebral activity is associated with vision. Large cortical areas from the occipital to frontal regions are involved in visual processes and almost 90% of vision time is devoted to fixation. When things are apprehended by the senses, the number that can be attended to at once is small: “Pluribus intentus, minor est ad singola sensus” William James. This is especially true for the visual system, the limited perception-related informational capacity of which, is due to its neurobiological characteristics.
