Two visual systems re-viewed.

Milner, A.D. and Goodale, M.A. (2008) 'Two visual systems re-viewed.', Neuropsychologia., 46 . pp. 774-785.


The model proposed by the authors of two cortical systems providing ‘vision for action’ and ‘vision for perception’, respectively, owed much to the inspiration of Larry Weiskrantz. In the present article some essential concepts inherent in the model are summarized, and certain clarifications and refinements are offered. Some illustrations are given of recent experiments by ourselves and others that have prompted us to sharpen these concepts. Our explicit hope in writing our book in 1995 was to provide a theoretical framework that would stimulate research in the field. Conversely, well-designed empirical contributions conceived within the framework of the model are the only way for us to progress along the route towards a fully fleshed-out specification of its workings.
