I've read both papers, and I still don't understand what you mean by "stream".
At first I thought you were refering to the occipitotemporal/semantic/ventral
versus the occipitoparietal/schema/dorsal pathways, but it didn't fit the
question as parietal is mentioned in both of your conditions. As far as area 6
and 7, Jeannerod notes that they are complementary to one another and are
anatomically interconnected (Murel and Bullier 1990). I am also having trouble
interpreting the intended meaning behind the equal signs.
