The ventral visual stream underlies key human visual object recognition abilities. However, neural encoding in the higher areas of the ventral stream remains poorly understood. Here, we describe a modeling approach that yields a quantitatively accurate model of inferior temporal (IT) cortex, the highest ventral cortical area. Using high-throughput(More)
The primate visual system achieves remarkable visual object recognition performance even in brief presentations, and under changes to object exemplar, geometric transformations, and background variation (a.k.a. core visual object recognition). This remarkable performance is mediated by the representation formed in inferior temporal (IT) cortex. In parallel,(More)
To go beyond qualitative models of the biological substrate of object recognition, we ask: can a single ventral stream neuronal linking hypothesis quantitatively account for core object recognition performance over a broad range of tasks? We measured human performance in 64 object recognition tests using thousands of challenging images that explore shape(More)
In this two year prospective study, random blood glucose levels were determined in 52 eclamptic patients and 38 controls, at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital and Specialist Hospitals in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Eclamptic mothers had lower glucose levels (mean value = 3.5 mmol/l) than controls (mean value = 6.8 mmol/l) (P < 0.001). Nineteen(More)
It is received wisdom that biological visual systems easily outmatch current artificial systems at complex visual tasks like object recognition. But have the appropriate comparisons been made? Because artificial systems are improving every day, they may surpass human performance some day. We must understand our progress toward reaching that day, because(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of clinical and biochemical rickets in an under-five out-patient population, relate the prevalence of biochemical rickets (BR) to the sociocultural characteristics of families and determine the response of nutritional rickets to vitamin D therapy. DESIGN Prospective cross-sectional and retrospective case-series(More)
