Features, objects, action: The cognitive neuropsychology of visual object processing, 1984-2004.
Humphreys GW., Riddoch MJ.
We review evidence on the cognitive neuropsychology of visual object processing, from 1984-2004, dividing the work according to whether it deals with the analysis of visual features, objects, or the relations between object processing and action. Research across this period has led to (1) a more detailed analysis of disorders of feature processing and feature binding, (2) a finer-grained understanding of disorders of object recognition, how these disorders can change over time, and their relations to visual imagery, and (3) new accounts of the relations between vision and action. Cognitive neuropsychological studies have played a key part in furthering our understanding of the functional nature of object processing in the brain.
