Removal or inactivation of the neurons results in a perceptual deficit It does; we wonʼt review the evidence. Neural and psychophysical sensitivities can be reconciled Artificial activation of the neurons shifts perception in a predictable manner At or near threshold, trial-by-trial fluctuations in behavior are correlated with trial-by-trial fluctuations in firing rate How do we know if neurons in IT are actually involved in object perception (as opposed to just firing)?
