In this issue of Neuron, Kar and DiCarlo (2021) demonstrate that feedback from ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (VLPFC) to inferotemporal cortex (IT) is required for object recognition. They show that inactivating VLPFC selectively degrades object recognition performance and population encoding of object identity in IT.
