In our review, we summarize recent advances in the research of the inferior temporal cortex (ITC) of the macaque monkey. This area of the cortex is known to have a crucial role in visual shape recognition and is regarded as being at the end stage of the so-called ventral visual pathway.

During this decade, experimental… CONTINUE READING
