Development and selectivity of object-recognition circuitry in the Primate Brain

We ask how tuning properties of individual neurons in high-level visual areas come to be selective for complex visual objects the animals have encountered (or not) during their development, and how these neurons com to be clustered at a gross level in the brain. We use single-unit electrophysiology, functional MRI, behavior, and modeling.
