  1. What pathway
    Neural pathway, extending from the occipital lobe to the temporal lobe, that is associated with perceiving or recognizing objects. Corresponds to the perception pathway.
  2. Where pathway
    Neural pathway, extending from the occipital lobe to the parietal lobe, that is associated with neural processing that occurs when people locate objects in space. Roughly corresponds to the action pathway.
  3. Action pathway
    Neural pathway, extending from the occipital lobe to the parietal lobe, that is associated with neural processing that occurs when people take action. Corresponds to the where pathway.
  4. Algorithm
    A procedure that is guaranteed to solve a problem.
  5. Audiovisual mirror neuron
    Neuron in the monkey premotor cortex that responds when a monkey performs a hand action and also when it hears the sound associated with this action (for example, the action associated with breaking a peanut, and the associated sound). Also see Mirror neuron.
  6. Bottom–up processing
    Processing that starts with information received by the receptors. This type of processing can also be called data–based processing.
