Unformatted text preview: est that selectivity increases across the ventral visual pathway? Probably; itʼs unclear How does the neural code for objects change as signals propagate through the brain? Answer: somewhere in the middle Neurons are responding to something about “objects” (not just features) in IT Suggests a representation of specific objects IT neurons are not all specific object detectors No, wait - itʼs not?! IT Some high-level visual neurons seem to make sense ... IT But other IT neurons donʼt make any sense ... Likes these a lot Likes these a little Does not like these IT The average IT neuron responds to 10% of all images with a high firing rate this suggests that IT neurons are not all specific object detectors One thing we know is that even the IT neurons that donʼt make sense require “natural structure” in images to produce a response (they donʼt respond to scrambled images) IT neurons respond well to these IT neurons do not respond very well to these this suggests that IT neurons are responding to something about the “global” structure of objects (not just local featur...
