Vision: A Neuroethological Perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter presents a detailed neuroanatomical and neurophysiological account of visual processing in the primate brain. It suggests that consideration of the natural requirements for detecting and identifying behaviorally meaningful stimuli such as insects, fruits, and the facial identities and expressions of other individuals, likely played an important role in the evolution of visual processing and, by extension, the evolution of cognition in primates.
