The role of prefrontal cortex (PFC) in vision remains mysterious. While it is well established that PFC neuronal activity reflects visual features, it is commonly thought that such feature encoding in PFC is only for the service of behaviorally relevant functions. However, recent emerging evidence challenges this notion, and instead suggests that the PFC may be integral for visual perception and recognition. This symposium will address these issues from complementary angles, deriving insights from the perspectives of neuronal tuning in nonhuman primates, neuroimaging and lesion studies in humans, recent development in artificial intelligence, and to draw implications for psychiatric disorders.
