Abstract

Synopsis
The visual system has evolved to help guide behavior. In primates, a network of brain areas work together to orchestrate eye, hand, and limb movements with precise spatial and temporal precision. Here we review the extensive behavioral and neurophysiological literature that has contributed to our understanding of how visual information is transformed to guide behavior.
