I will describe the location and general properties of ten visual field maps in human cortex. The experimental methods for revealing these maps, as well as information about stimulus responsivity within the maps, will be reviewed. We propose that human visual field maps are grouped into several clusters that share a common foveal representation and semicircular eccentricity map. We speculate that the perceptual processing within each cluster serves related functions; these clusters and their stimulus responsivities may provide insight into visual computations.
