 Abstract: Ever since the days of René Descartes, in the seventeenth century, the search for the relationship between subjective perception and neural activity has been an ongoing challenge. In neuroscience, an approach to the problem via the visual system has produced a paradigm using perceptual suppression, changing with time. Cortical areas in which the neural activity was modulated in temporal correlation with this percept could be traced. Although these areas may lead directly to perception, such temporal correlation of neural activity does not suffice as ultimate proof that they actually do so. In this article, I will use a different method to show that, for the perception of our own retina, any brain area leading directly to this perception also needs to represent the retina without distortion. Furthermore, I will demonstrate that the phenomenon of size constancy must be realized in this area.
