Information Processing Strategies and Pathways in the Primate Visual System

  title={Information Processing Strategies and Pathways in the Primate Visual System},
  author={David C. Van Essen and Charles H. Anderson},
The mammalian visual pathway is an amazingly complex and intricate system, capable of processing vast amounts of sensory information for use in the precise control of both immediate and long-term behavior. In many respects, the system is very well engineered for efficient extraction and encoding of information. To give just one example, it is well known that the spacing between photoreceptors in the region of highest acuity is closely matched to the limits of resolution imposed by the physical… CONTINUE READING
