Recent advances suggest that neurons of the anterior intraparietal area play a critical role in the visual guidance of hand action. The parietal cortex appears to process in-coming binocular visual signals of the three-dimensional features of objects and matches these signals with the motor signals, which come from the ventral premotor cortex, that will be required for hand manipulation of the object.
