These systems are termed the parvocellular system (P) and the magnocellular system (M). These two systems have different tasks to perform in visual perception. The parvo-system is involved in perceiving details and colours. The magno-system gathers its information from the entire visual field, and it is especially active when the sensory input is very brief, as for example when reading, and in motion detection. Groups ofletters "flash" by, never lingering, in fluent reading at least, for more than the bat of an eye.
