Object Recognition in a Flash - This Week in Science
Humans and other primates have the astonishing ability to recognize and categorize objects within 200 milliseconds. By using a classifier-based decoding approach, Hung et al. (p. 863) characterized the neuronal representation for object recognition in monkey inferotemporal cortex (area IT) and quantitatively examined the underlying neural code. Surprisingly, the activity of small numbers of neurons over very short periods of time was sufficient to support rapid and accurate recognition of object category and identity, which was at the same time invariant to large changes in object position and scale.
