The correct answer to this question is Occipital. There are four major lobes of the cerebral cortex in the brain of mammals. Occipital is one of those four major lobes. It is known as the visual processing center, for it contains the anatomical region of the visual cortex.

There are two occipital lobes in the brain, and they are the smallest of the four lobes. They are located in the rear of the skull and are a part of the posterior cerebrum. The occipital lobe gains its name from the occipital bone which is over the lobes. These lobes are also crucial in our perception of things.
