Computational Neuroscience of Vision

This chapter examines the outputs of the ventral visual processing stream, from the inferior temporal visual cortical areas in particular. It explains that neuronal outputs provide a distributed representation of ‘what’ object or face is being viewed, while specialized subregions, such as the cortex in the superior temporal sulcus, provide evidence about face expression and about movements of objects and people. The chapter describes how attentional bias could be implemented by the operation of short-term-memory systems, explains why short-term memory must be separate from the temporal lobe and parietal lobe perceptual systems, and proposes a theory on how these short-term-memory systems work.

Keywords:   ventral visual processing, visual cortical areas, neuronal outputs, superior temporal sulcus, face expression, attentional bias, short-term memory, temporal lobe, parietal lobe
