However, significant visual recovery has been documented in children with visual loss caused by calcarine
cortex injury (Casteels et al.
, postcentral, precentral, and temporal transverse cortices and deep structures of the cerebellar hemispheres of the brain), along with lesions of peripheral sensory nerve fibers (Takeuchi and Eto 1999).
If we imagine a semitruck in our mind's eye and then a postage stamp, we would see activation in the calcarine
fissure, a deep fold in the visual system at the back of the brain.

sulcus of the monkey Macaca fascicularis following long-term subclinical exposure to methylmercury and mercuric chloride.
The most characteristic imaging pattern in PRES is the presence of edema involving the white matter of the posterior portions of both cerebral hemispheres, especially the parietooccipital regions, in a relatively symmetric pattern that spares the calcarine
and paramedian parts of the occipital lobes.
