In the cortex of monkeys and primates there are more that 30 visual areas that make more than 300 interconnections. In progressively higher visual areas beyond area V1 that receptive fields become progressively larger and the visual analyses performed become more complex. This chapter has nine subdivisions. Section A provides a general background about visual processing in brain regions beyond area V1. Sections B, C, D, and E describe areas V2, V3, V4, the middle temporal area (MT), and the middle superior temporal area (MST). Section F examines the posterior parietal cortex. Section G describes how object vision is processed in the temporal lobe. In section H the processing streams involved in the visual system are laid out. Section I provides a summary of this chapter.

Keywords:   area V1, area V2, area V3, area V4, middle temporal area, temporal lobe, extrastriate cortex
