Hello,
Suppose I have a primitive cubic cell with 8 atoms, one on each corner of the cube. I don't understand how this consists of only one lattice point? Doesn't each corner have a lattice point, thus the cell would consist of 8 lattice points??

No, several lattice points are used to reproduce the entire lattice by symmetry operations.
