A core organizing principle for studies of the brain is that distinct neural pathways mediate distinct behavioral tasks [1, 2]. When two related tasks are mediated by a common pathway, studies of one are likely to generalize to the other. Here, we test whether performance on two laboratory tasks that model object detection and identification are mediated by common mechanisms of visual adaptation. Although both tasks rely on the luminance pattern in images, their demands on visual processing are… CONTINUE READING
