The anterior inferotemporal cortex (IT) is the highest stage along the hierarchy of visual areas that, in primates, processes visual objects. Although several lines of evidence suggest that IT primarily represents visual shape information, some recent studies have argued that neuronal ensembles in IT code the semantic membership of visual objects (i.e.,(More)
The ability to recognize objects despite substantial variation in their appearance (e.g., because of position or size changes) represents such a formidable computational feat that it is widely assumed to be unique to primates. Such an assumption has restricted the investigation of its neuronal underpinnings to primate studies, which allow only a limited(More)
Understanding what object features the visual system relies upon, when engaged in visual object recognition, is a longstanding challenge in psychophysical studies of visual perception. Although successful approaches have been developed to address this issue (e.g., image classification methods [1]), they have a major limitation: they can estimate the(More)
