Abstract
In this report we review a large body of literature describing how experience affects recognition. Both neurophysiology and psychophysics provide clear evidence for the development of recognition over time. In particular, we show how perceptual learning in recognition tasks can be directly linked to learning in feature tuned inferotemporal lobe neurons in the primate brain. The environment as we experience it, is so structured that potentially very different images appearing in close temporal succession are likely to be views of the same object. We argue that this temporal structure forms the basis of a tendency (a prior in the sense of Bayesian Statistics) of the human visual system to associate images of objects together over short periods of time.
