It is sometimes said that the biological purpose of the brain is to generate behaviour. On the other hand, about half of the cerebral cortex is devoted to vision-related functions. It follows that the neural processes that transform vision into commands for behaviour are central to brain function. It also follows that studying these visual-motor processes is essential for understanding what goes wrong in neurology and neuropsychology patients. We are particularly interested in the spatial aspects of visual-motor control, i.e., how the brain represents visual space and then transforms this into the patterns of muscular contraction required for accurate movements in 3-D space.
