About the cover

November 2008 Volume 11 No 11

The role of inferotemporal cortex in decoding two-dimensional patterns has been extensively studied, but the more difficult problem of three-dimensional shape representation has been relatively unexplored. In this issue, Yamane and colleagues use new techniques for adaptive stimulus presentation and response modeling to extensively characterize neural coding for three-dimensional objects.
