Knowledge of Action & Cognition Visual System is helpful. In this lecture, we discuss the physiological substrate of cognitive processes with an emphasis on their relation to behavior. That is, we will cover extensive parts of the brain that are usually considered the motor system, i.e. executing in a somewhat dumb form what other parts of the brain decided upon. We will further critically analyze this view.
