There are two different visual systems: one for perceiving form and colour, the other for dealing with objects’ motion. The steps of visual information processing are scrutinized and it is shown that, although a certain mapping (retinotopy) with the external environment is maintained in the first stages, in subsequent stages the feedback coming from higher-level processing regions determines a sophisticated object construction. Both a pure reductionist view and a holist view are insufficient and need to be integrated.
