Visual pathways supporting perception and action in the primate cerebral cortex Academic Article uri icon


  • Behavioral and electrophysiological evidence suggests a new interpretation of the division of labor between the ventral and dorsal streams of visual processing in primate cerebral cortex. It is suggested that the ventral stream mediates the perception of objects while the dorsal stream mediates the on-line control of skilled actions directed at those objects.
