Area TE of the monkey inferior temporal cortex represents the final stage of the visual pathway responsible for object vision. Neurons in area TE respond selectively to particular object features which are more complex than simple bars and spots, but simpler than an ordinary real-world object. This area consists of columns of 0.4-0.5 mm width, each containing cells responding to similar object features. The overall composition of an object may be represented by the combination of active columns.
