Volume 3 Issue 8

DiCarlo and Maunsell demonstrate that neuronal responses in IT cortex are unaltered by free viewing. Shown here are eye movement paths made by a monkey when it freely searched an array of distractor stimuli (white symbols) and identified target stimuli by making a saccade to one of four response locations (the corners of the image). Data from each trial is shown in a different color that corresponds to the target identity. See pages 745 and 814.

    Is face perception carried out by modules specialized only for processing faces? Or are faces perceived by domain-general mechanisms that can also operate on non-face stimuli? Considerable evidence supports the domain-specific view.
