Complementary Cognitive and Motor Image Processing

  • Bruce Bridgeman
Part of the Perspectives in Vision Research book series (PIVR)


Everyone shares the irresistible conception that vision is one sense. We experience one coherent visual world and produce visually guided behavior to interact with that world. Extensive laboratory work, however, has shown this introspection to be in error: visual processing has several representations of space, coding different aspects of the information available from vision. The representations operate simultaneously, in parallel, in performing various visual functions.
