This book aims to give an overview of the current knowledge of the essential neural mechanisms of perception, learning, and memory, but it also addresses some of the controversies and debates in the field, and highlights some of the recent changes in the conception of these issues. Gabriel Horn has played a pioneering role in these fields of research and this book contains a collection of chapters marking his achievements. This section of the book is concerned with brain mechanisms of perception and attention. It discusses how the primate brain encodes and remembers visuomotor space and talks about integrating information from different senses in the superior colliculus. Furthermore, it also explains response synchronization, a neuronal code for relatedness, and visual attention in mind and brain. Finally, it throws a light on the predispositions in perceptual and cognitive development.
