Abstract
Using fMRI in anesthetized monkeys, this study investigates how the primate visual system constructs representations of three-dimensional (3D) shape from a variety of cues. Computer-generated 3D objects defined by shading, random dots, texture elements, or silhouettes were presented either statically or dynamically (rotating). Results suggest that 3D shaperepresentations are highly localized, although widely distributed, in occipital, temporal, parietal, and frontal cortices and may involve common brain regions regardless of shape cue. This distributed network of areas cuts across both “what” and “where” processing streams, reflecting multiple uses for 3D shaperepresentation in perception, recognition, and action.
