Abstract
We review psychological evidence that shows properties distinguishing object descriptions and sensory feature maps. We then outline a neurocomputational approach to the computation of object features from the sensory data and for learning these descriptions. We concentrate on acquiring object concepts that generalise across position on the sensory surface.
