These inferences do not require higher-level cognitive processing based on the knowledge of familiar objections. 2, our goal is twofold. First, we report on experiments that confirm that phenomenological descriptions, thus adding weight to our previous analysis. Second, we show that the role of surface representation is crucial in a wide variety of visual functions, even those that have been traditionally thought to be directly mediated by the properties of early cortical neurons. The visual functions we studied include visual search, visual object recognition, visual motion perception, and visual texture perception.

In this chapter Goodale shows how systems used in object recognition are complemented by others that govern movements. Chapter 6 focuses on a specific system governing movements, the one controlling eye movements. Kowler shows how much we can learn by observing eye movements, which are an index of attention as well as of goal-driven processing. We see that eye movements tell us much about visual cognition in general. Chapter 7 builds on the previous chapters to consider another function of visual representationstheir role in forming and using mental images.
