Abstract

Abstract The present review is aimed at analyzing and discussing some of the cortical mechanisms possibly involved in the perception of object motion and object localization in the visual field. A comprehensive approach to these topics would be beyond the scope of this work. The highest priority, therefore, will be given to the cortical machinery involved in these processes, while very little (or nothing at all) will be said on the possible role played by subcortical structures such as the lateral geniculate nucleus and the superior colliculus which, albeit not directly involved in perception, might contribute to it.
