Mid-level cortical representations for object recognition

Abstract: I am interested in understanding how mid-level processing stages of the primate ventral visual pathway encode visual stimuli and how these representations might underlie our ability to segment visual scenes and recognize objects. In my talk, I will present results demonstrating joint encoding of shape and surface texture in mid-level visual cortex and our efforts to develop image-computable models to explain how these properties might arise. I will also discuss how feedback interactions between visual and frontal cortices might clarify visual representations and facilitate object recognition under partial occlusion.
