Hierarchical models of object recognition in cortex
Visual processing in cortex is classically modeled as a hierarchy of increasingly sophisticated representations, naturally extending the model of simple to complex cells of Hubel and Wiesel.Expand
Robust Object Recognition with Cortex-Like Mechanisms
We introduce a general framework for the recognition of complex visual scenes, which is motivated by biology: We describe a hierarchical system that closely follows the organization of visual cortex and builds an increasingly complex and invariant feature representation by alternating between a template matching and a maximum pooling operation.

Categorical representation of visual stimuli in the primate prefrontal cortex.
The ability to group stimuli into meaningful categories is a fundamental cognitive process. To explore its neural basis, we trained monkeys to categorize computer-generated stimuli as "cats" andExpand
A Comparison of Primate Prefrontal and Inferior Temporal Cortices during Visual Categorization
Previous studies have suggested that both the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and inferior temporal cortex (ITC) are involved in high-level visual processing and categorization, but their respective rolesExpand
Categorization Training Results in Shape- and Category-Selective Human Neural Plasticity
Object category learning is a fundamental ability, requiring the combination of "bottom-up" stimulus-driven with "top-down" task-specific information. It therefore may be a fruitful domain for studyExpand
Models of object recognition
We briefly review some recent trends in computational vision and then focus on feedforward, view-based models that are supported by psychophysical and physiological data. Expand
Evaluation of a Shape-Based Model of Human Face Discrimination Using fMRI and Behavioral Techniques
Understanding the neural mechanisms underlying object recognition is one of the fundamental challenges of visual neuroscience. While neurophysiology experiments have provided evidence for aExpand
Evidence for Highly Selective Neuronal Tuning to Whole Words in the “Visual Word Form Area”
Theories of reading have posited the existence of a neural representation coding for whole real words (i.e., an orthographic lexicon), but experimental support for such a representation has provedExpand
A model of V4 shape selectivity and invariance.
Object recognition in primates is mediated by the ventral visual pathway and is classically described as a feedforward hierarchy of increasingly sophisticated representations. Neurons in macaqueExpand
Are Cortical Models Really Bound by the “Binding Problem”?
