Our senses are processed on largely different pathways,
ach providing a unique window to the world.Multimodal processing requires
One example is the superior temporal sulcus (STS), which contains unimodal, bimodal, and trimodal neurons.
The superior colliculus Contains neurons that respond preferentially to multimodal input
Some synesthetes mix words and taste, such that
Focusing on the global structure gives rise to one color perception,
We combine our representations of color, shape, form, texture, motion, etc...
One theory of object recognition posits that we have so-called “grandmother” neurons that
Another view is that ensembles of neurons represent
Lateral Occipital Cortex (LOC) responds to both familiar and novel objects
Some patients exhibit category-specific associative agnosia with
Living-objects also share more similar characteristics,
Farah and McClelland tested this with a model of a property-based semantic representation.
Lesioning the visual semantic memory gave rise to
We do not need to conclude knowledge is organized across categories to
Fusiform gyrus (especially on the right, which is the left in this image) is
Keenan et al. (2001) deactivated each hemisphere of the brain and tested whether patients saw a morphed image as themselves or a famous person.
Sensory information converges in multimodal processing regions,
Object representation (i.e., our semantic knowledge) is thought to involve these multimodal processing regions coding for
