Lateral and Medial Ventral Occipitotemporal Regions Interact During the Recognition of Images Revealed from Noise

posted in: New Paper | 0
How does the brain accomplish object recognition? In this study that appeared in Frontiers of Human Neuroscience, Barbara Nordhjem and colleagues demonstrate that lateral sections of the ventral visual cortex interact during the recognition of images that were slowly revealed from noise, indicating both are essential for sustaining object vision, thereby countering previous ideas that single categorically specialized regions would be responsible for this.
