Neural processing of visual and auditory information 35 stream. This distinction was first elaborated by Ungerleider and Mishkin (1982) and was based on their lesion work that showed deficits in object perception and recognition after lesions to the inferotemporal regions of the cortex, and deficits in spatial location behaviour, with lesions of the parietal cortex. Recently, Milner and Goodale (1995) have suggested that the dorsal stream can best be characterized as processing visual information required for action, whereas the ventral stream is processing information for perception.
