Abstract

We are rapidly approaching a comprehensive understanding of the neural mechanisms behind object recognition. How we use this knowledge of the visual world to plan and act is comparatively mysterious. To fill this gap, we must understand how visual representations are transformed within cognitive regions, and how these cognitive representations of visual information act back upon earlier sensory representations. Here, we summarize our current understanding of visual representation in inferotemporal cortex (IT) and prefrontal cortex (PFC), and the interactions between them. We emphasize the apparent consistency of visual representation in PFC across tasks, and suggest ways to leverage advances in our understanding of high-level vision to better understand cognitive processing.
