Hello ! 
Is there anyone who has (or knows about) literature to the subject of object 
recognition in the human visual system ?
The literature I have is (or is derived of) the work of Hubel and Wiese on
the striate cortex (hypercolumn theory).
Does anyone have more recent literature on this subject, especially on how
(high-level) object recognition outside the striate cortex is performed.
The question of interest to me is: What is known today about how the brain
manages to recognize objects (eg. a letter) regardless of their size, 
orientation etc. .
If you know anything about those questions please mail to:

Thanks a lot,
Rainer Krienke
