The occipital bone is located at the lower back area of the cranium. Some persons experience pain in the occipital bone indicative of tight neck muscles. The occipital lobes are located at the back of the brain and therefore shielded largely from injury. Any injury or tumor in the occipital lobe can lead to problems in visual space processing and color discrimination. It can lead to hallucinations and illusions. The occipital lobe is where our dreams are formed.
