Abstract
To understand how objects are recognized and represented in the human brain is still one of the ultimate goals of cognitive science. In this article, we will collect evidence from mainly neurophysiological studies which suggest that object recognition is achieved by hierarchical processing in the brain and that the representation of objects is distributed and view-based. Furthermore, these studies propose that the temporal coherence of the visual input plays a fundamental role in the learning of object representations.
