While looking at the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), using PET, researcher Semir Zeki directly demonstrated functional specialization within the visual cortex known as visual modularity. He localized regions involved specifically in the perception of colour and vision motion.

Localization Of The Cerebral Functions Whether the entire surface of the hemispheres can be mapped out into areas, each of which is set apart for a definite immutable function, is a question surrounded with difficulty, and which, up to the present, cannot be answered with certainty. The cerebrum is divided into four lobes: frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal and into two gyri: the cingulate and insular. The four lobes were named based on their relationship to the overlying skull bones. There is a left and right hemisphere and each of these lobes has a distinct function. The major cell types in the cerebrum consist of two types—spiny or nonspiny stellate and. Localization of function in the cerebral cortex. Baltimore, Williams & Wilkins Co., (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Association for Research in Nervous and Mental Disease. OCLC Number: Notes: "List of members": p. Description: xxi, pages illustrations, tables (2 folded) diagrams This book is based on the Lane Medical Lectures which Penfield gave in Four hundred craniotomies performed between and presented the opportunity to stimulate various parts of the cerebral cortex with electrical currents and to record the objective (movements) and subjective effects.

The cerebral cortex consists of four lobes: the anteriorly placed frontal lobe, the parietal lobe in the middle, and the occipital lobe posteriorly with the inferiorly placed temporal lobe. The cortical neurons are found on the surface of the cerebrum covering the cortical white matter. Even today it forms the basis for so-called "localisation" of function in the cerebral cortex. Brodmann's "areas" are still used to designate functional regions in the cortex, the part of the brain that brings the world that surrounds us into consciousness, and which governs our responses to the : Springer US.   Localization of function refers to the belief that specific areas of the cerebral cortex are associated with specific physical or behavioral functions. Examples of case studies to prove how specific locations of the brain can be affected and have an impact on behavior are demonstrated by the HM and Phineas Gage incident. Volume XIII of the "Localization of Function in the Cerebral Cortex" is one of the best of the publications issued under the auspices of the Association for Research in Nervous and Mental Disease. The scheme of the book is good. There are three sections: (1) anatomic basis; (2) physiologic analysis, and (3) clinical studies.
