The dorsal visual processing stream subserves object-directed action, whereas the ventral visual processing stream subserves visual object recognition. Little is known about how information computed by dorsal-stream structures influences object recognition.

We show that information originating from the dorsal stream influences not only decisions… CONTINUE READING
