SUMMARY
The pictorial content of visual memories re-
called by association is embodied by neuronal
activity at the highest processing stages of
primate visual cortex. This activity is elicited
by top-down signals from the frontal lobe and
recapitulates the bottom-up pattern normally
obtained by the recalled stimulus. To explore
